Product Designer Jason McClintock is Speaking at WordCamp Philly

We’re going to Philly! Well, actually, we’re already here.

I’m excited to be speaking at my hometown WordCamp Philly. I’ll be giving a talk titled “An Introduction to Design Systems”. My hope for this talk is that it will serve as a jumping off point for anyone who is looking to get into using or making a design system of their own. You’ll learn what design systems are, why and how to use them, and a glimpse at the systematized future of design in WordPress.

WordCamp Phily starts today at 9:30am EST and is free to attend.

There’s been a lot of buzz around design systems in recent years. As we’ve started implementing a design system of our own behind the scenes here at DigitalCube (Keep an eye out for more on that soon), we’ve been learning a ton, and we can’t wait to share more.

In the meantime, for those interested in learning more about design systems, I’ve compiled a list of resources that I’ve found helpful during our process.
