As a preview to our upcoming XConf NA (, 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"


Talk Description:

Come on a tour through the engineering of the React-powered design system developed over the past year with our client TELUS Digital. We'll examine technologies such as CSS Modules, modern JavaScript testing practices, architectural decisions, & strategies for scaling to hundreds of users.

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.
