Talk: Design Systems - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

How can we make designers, developers and content strategists more aligned and productive in their every day work? How can you make your user’s experience one cohesive application, no matter who wrote the code? Is there a way to pre-bake responsiveness and accessibility into your application instead of it being an afterthought? I’ll be using real examples from Shopify’s design system, Polaris, to show how design systems can help with all of these things and more. In the famous words of Daft Punk, design systems can help us work it harder, make it better, do it faster and make us stronger.
