Say No To Accidental Architecture! Code Your Design Systems Instead

Presented by: Burton Smith

Are you still rockin' a single "styles.css" file in or project or have styles scattered throughout your project? Do you find yourself fighting to override styles or throw the "!important" property around a lot? Does your project have 20 different kinds of buttons and you don't know why or even where they are all defined? If you answered yes to any of these or just find it difficult to manage and scale the styles for your project, chances are you are a victim of "Accidental Architecture".

In this session, we will discuss how to prevent "Accidental Architecture" from happening and instead discuss the benefits of Design Systems and how they can be leveraged to create meaningful architecture. We will also introduce some tools to assess your current applications as well as a framework and an architecture that is easy to adapt and implement from one project to another.
