ViriCiti & De Voorhoede // Design System Tooling

Oct 7, 2021 · Amsterdam, Netherlands

Everybody wants a design system these days. As soon as you have multiple digital products, it’s hard to have a consistent look & feel and keep it that way. Design systems promise to solve this with a bonus of efficiency through reusability. But a design system is a living product in itself. How do you keep design and development in sync once part of your design system is design files and part is code? Enrique will share how ViriCiti achieves using Abstract and Storybook.

Atomic Design System with Abstract & Storybook
by Enrique Tamames & Tereza Loucova, ViriCiti
Design & Frontend integration is not always easy. We need to align these two disciplines as much as we can. Abstract allows us to have a properly versioned design system as a reference for Frontend. Storybook allows us to have a single source of truth for component discovery. How do we integrate these components? How do we deploy them? Are there any standards to follow? Tereza (design) & Enrique (frontend) will show how to make the aesthetics and wireframes for the product but also turn them into reality via code.

The anatomy of a component
by Jasper Moelker, De Voorhoede
Components in a design system are much more than pixels in a design file. So as a developer I can't simply look at the design of a component and turn it into code. During his presentation, Jasper will share how he breaks components down to their essence, which techniques he uses and yes, which problems he always runs into.
Jasper is CTO at De Voorhoede and is always on the lookout for new technology.

  • Front-end Forward

    We are a group of front-end fanatics. We want to move the web forward, without breaking it. There's a new front-end technology every. single. day. New devices, new browser APIs, new frameworks, libraries and more. How do use all these new goodies without breaking what's already there? We meetup in Amsterdam to present and discuss new front-end technologies and best practices. We'll be sure food and drinks are available while sharing your experiences.
