Design systems aren’t just a trend. They’re a best practice for design consistency and efficiency between designers and developers. Before, only large companies could afford the effort of building and maintaining a design system. But with the growth of new tools and processes, design systems are much more feasible for companies of all sizes.
Between Feb. 13 and 16 this year, UXPin is hosting the largest design systems event in the industry. Design Systems Virtual Summit 2018 is online and free thanks to sponsorship from Atlassian and Salesforce.
They’ve invited 15 experts from companies like Atlassian, Airbnb, Salesforce, Linkedin, Zendesk, GE Digital, IBM, and more. Each speaker will share lessons learned from projects and case studies.
