    What makes a design system play well?

    Having the right mix of tooling and culture is key to making a design system a playful collaborative experience for all stakeholders. In this talk we review how tools like Storybook and Playroom uplift design systems and make them accessible to developers and designers alike. We’ll review tips and ideas for encouraging the right culture for engaging with design systems and their maintainers.
