Scale ruins everything!

Tech companies face a challenge: as teams grow, it's harder to maintain quality, consistency, and speed. Fortunately, forward-thinking tech lead companies have recognized this issue and taken action by creating Design Systems. These are more than component libraries; they are about scaling and creating a community based on your organization's culture. By attending a talk given by an experienced Design System Lead, you can gain valuable insights into their experiences and learn how to approach the systematic development of your entire production team, even if you’re currently a team of one.
