Adapting a component library for better adoption
Developing a UI component library for a large organisation with many different products is a challenging endeavour. A good system will strike the right balance between consistency and flexibility and will afford developers efficiency and quality. These are characteristics difficult to get right up front.
At the ABC, we are continually iterating our component library to improve a key measure of success: adoption. We want teams to want to use it! This talk will discuss some of the challenges we’ve faced, how we approach trying to find the right level of component granularity and cover some illustrative examples of the changes we’ve made to get more developers of ABC digital products on board.
After running a one man shop for many years building all sorts of client websites, Tim started a new chapter working within a larger organisation as a member of the ABC’s Web Framework team. Primarily focused on developing a component library for the ABC’s new front end platform, Tim enjoys building tiny parts of a big machine and working with other teams to make it all fit together.
