As a preview to our upcoming XConf NA (https://bit.ly/2y0aUjC), we are giving you a preview of one of our speakers Ryan Oglesby!
6:30 PM -- Doors open for refreshments & networking
7:00 - 8:00 PM -- Ryan Oglesby will talk about "Engineering a design system"
While plenty is said about design system theory - getting buy in, team structure, visual design - you wont get very far without solid engineering practices, sound architecture, & the right technologies. But there is a lack of available material about the unique technical challenges of design systems, especially with modern technologies such as React.
This talk digs into the technical details of building a design system, including specific front end technologies & how we put them to use. Whether your company has a design system or not, you can immediately apply or adapt some of the learnings & technologies to your own work.
Ryan Oglesby is a Software Consultant at ThoughtWorks, where he has spent the last 6 years working in a variety of domains, technologies, & teams. He enjoys tackling the often innocent-looking, yet usually complex challenges of front-end design, architecture, & development. Over the past year he has led the strategy & development of the Design System at a large telecommunications company.
