This is not your parents' pattern library: A fresh approach in defining corporate design standards

A session at EuroIA 2013

Friday 27th September, 2013

2:30pm to 3:15pm (GMT)

Think pattern libraries are outdated? Think again. We'd like to challenge the perception of what patterns and pattern libraries are. In this talk, we'll discuss the fading relevance of traditional pattern libraries and show you what we've done to reinvigorate our Design Standards hub at eBay, making it more engaging and maximizing it's usefulness. We'll talk about pattern libraries as not only agents of, but also products of change, and how extending the purpose eBay's own pattern library serves has increased adoption and understanding of design standards across the company.

This talk will be powerful for anyone developing design guidelines or looking to create design efficiencies within their company. Attendees will walk away with a fresh perspective on how to create relevant and approachable design standards.
