THAT Conf 2021

THAT Conf 2021

Opportunity, documentation, and making the tech approachable are all core principles for onboarding any new platform into any size organization. How can we make it easy for new devs to consume? How could we make it easy for new devs to contribute? Design has a pivotal role in this as well. The speed at which new or updated features and experiences are shipped is critical to business success.

In this talk, I want to share the experience our teams had with building a new design system during one of the most critical times in our history. I will discuss how we are leveraging a technology that most were unwilling to consider and using this as an opportunity to shape a new and innovative future for the org.
