About the Presentation

This talk covers developer-oriented strategies for building pattern libraries. It was my first conference talk, developed after I’d built three pattern libraries for NewCity clients.

The strategies outlined in the talk are based on my homegrown library approach at that time – not on any particular framework. It was before I’d worked with atomic design or tools like Pattern Lab or Fractal. It’s old, but some of the ideas hold up.

I share it here more for nostalgia than as a recommendation.
