You vs. The Design System They Told You Not to Worry About

While some companies have full-time teams of designers and developers, some can only do design systems work in their spare time. As an individual contributor, you may feel pressured to be a great engineer as well as hone your visual and interactions skills—or maybe you enjoy both but find companies often make you choose one over the other?

Despite being in the fortunate position of working with full-time design systems team, Diana Mounter, Design Systems Manager at GitHub, is not immune from feeling imposter syndrome or envy towards design systems team. Diana will share some real-talk behind design systems work, taking a look at industry examples in comparison to her own experiences, how they strive to do things at GitHub and what the future might hold.

There is no one way that works for growing companies and scaling teams during different stages of growth. Processes change depending on scale, shifts in team culture, and how the company works. As the company grows, bottlenecks suddenly appear as an indicator of the increasing complexity of the organization. How do you ensure there is team alignment & effective collaboration during different stages of growth: Early Stage, Middle Stage, Late Stage?

In this talk, Frank Yoo, Director of Design at Lyft, shares practical examples and strategies he has used along the way as a principle stakeholder at Lyft to navigate the transitions at different stages of growth.
