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.
James loves to design, code, and talk about weird web apps from ATX. He also writes snippets from the third-person.
