Building a Custom CSS Framework Was Easier Than I Thought

Presented by: Nate Taylor
Time: Thursday, Jan. 09, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

If you're like me, you've used several different front end frameworks such as Bootstrap, SemanticUI and others. You've enjoyed that they give you consistent components and layout.

But perhaps you've been frustrated by those same tools. It could be that every site you have created with them looks the same. Or maybe you've gotten into fights with your design team as they ask for a look and feel that is nearly impossible for you to pull off.

That was me until recently. Combining React, design systems and Storybook, my team and I were able to create our own component library from scratch, and it was easier than I could have imagined.

But more than just having our own framework, we found that our team was much more collaborative involving developers and designers as we created a custom UI for our client.

This talk walks through our experience, lessons learned, and highlights some tools and libraries that were essential in creating our own UI framework.
