Customizability in Design Systems

Maintaining the integrity of your design system is always about striking a balance between providing enough flexibility to meet your customer’s needs and introducing the right constraints.

This talk is about the process, thinking, and tooling behind the customizability in Atlassian’s design system, including how we support theming and customization of our react components.
