Inclusively-Delicious Design Systems

A presentation at Boston CSS in in Boston, MA, USA by Kathleen McMahon

Design systems are a popular way for teams to flavor their design and development workflow. However, an often-missing ingredient in many design systems is a focus on accessibility best practices — especially when component libraries are involved.

In this month’s Meetup, Kathleen McMahon will reveal the recipe for staying technically relevant — and sought after — in today’s workforce: JavaScript framework knowledge blended with solid HTML/CSS skills and accessibility best practices. Particularly for component libraries in a design system.

This talk will demonstrate how you can mix some commonly-used React components with the ingredients of accessibility. Pair this with best practices guidance in your documentation, and you’ll have the recipe for a delectably inclusive design system.
