Diana and Emily create design systems at Github.
Chantastic asks them about the story of design at Github, what role React will play in future systems, and what community tools that make their job easier.
They talk Rails, Lerna, monorepos, Figma, component APIs, and the importance of supporting your design system by supporting designers and engineers.
It’s a great discussion for everyone looking to improve processes in a legacy application.
Chantastic asks Burke Holland about Five Things, VS Code can do that?!, and what brought him to computers. They discuss Windows 98 UI, React at Microsoft, the gateway drug to TypeScript, React Food Truck, and how how he discovered the identity of horse_js.
Chantastic talks with Ryan Florence about Reach UI and why accessibility is important for everyone. They discuss the balance of physical and mental activity, Ryan’s foray into programming and entrepreneurship, the inspiration behind his accessibility-first component library, and why none of us are really full-stack developers.
Chantastic talks with Kent C Dodds about his adventures in React development and why we should be optimizing code for delete-ability.
