Dive into the world of Design Systems through Storybook and React. You will be a part of a multidisciplinary team with your focus either on development or design. Together, you will create a well-documented pattern library and build a modular website out of its components as a final product.
In the workshop, we will start by creating a visual design language for the team to share. Together, you will go through the iterative design process and build modular UI for the product. You will implement a pattern library using React and optionally styled-components, and document it with Storybook. The exercise contains managing collaborative updates and keeping the code in sync with the design reality. By the end of the day, you will have the product ready, built with the help of your library, and driven by an effective process to ensure smooth updates.
This workshop is all about hands-on doing and somewhat about development, but no pattern library can be built without design or designer, so ideal team will consist of both. A designer and a developer can, of course, co-exist in the same person 🙂 For people with the development mindset some prior experience in React or ES6, and CSS is appreciated.
To participate in the workshop, you will need your own laptop. As a developer or as a designer-developer, you should also have your favorite IDE installed.
The workshop is held at Nordcloud Helsinki Office. You will be in the capable of hands of our design system experts Varya Stepanova, Rami Ertimo, Junaid Rasheed and Mikko Rajala. Other Intergalactico colleagues will offer a helping hand when needed. Teams of about five people will be formed during the workshop. You can come alone or with your friend.
We will serve breakfast, lunch, and coffee + snacks to keep you going the whole day. See you at the Workshop!
