Death to the Boring Design System

Have we gotten into era where we do not push the potential of a design system.? Let’s explore how efforts, like CSS​ Grid, are allowing us to push what a design system does!

ForwardJS Ottawa 2018 was my first conference talk invitation and I had an absolute blast. Here, I got to show how we can experiment with new technologies to push design systems. The talk is a history lesson in design systems, an overview of IBM’s effort to drill down to a single design system, and a lot of fun experiments I did during that work.
