DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019 - External Design Systems in Practice

Speaker Session
Drupal

Brian Perry is heading to DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019! Catch his session Oct. 29 on, "External Design Systems in Practice."

When developing a pattern library or design system that will be used in support of a Drupal project, a key decision must be made regarding where the design system should live. Conceptually, many agree that it should be an external dependency of a Drupal theme in order to promote reuse, but a large number of projects still embed the design system inside of the theme in order to simplify workflow and component integration.

By the end of this session, you will have a better understanding of when using an external design system could benefit your project, along with a clearer understanding of how this approach could be implemented — both in projects using Twig and projects using a mix of templating engines.
