Companies increasingly rely on extensive design systems that allow them to reuse and deploy UI elements. How do we, as developers, bridge the gap from single, separate components to a robust design system?

The power of the open source community brought together two separate tools that pair perfectly to help make this process quick and easy:

• Storybook, maintained by Chroma, is an open source UI component development tool for React, Vue and Angular. Microsoft, AirBnB and more use Storybook to help them develop and design UI components outside apps, in an isolated environment.
• Auto, created and open sourced by Intuit engineers, Adam Dierkens and Andrew Lisowski, allows you to generate releases based on semantic version labels on PRs. Adam initially crafted Auto to solve for his team's specific release process, but the automation quickly attracted interest from other teams, and they eventually decided to open source the tool.

Involvement in open source connected Storybook and Auto, and helped their maintainers realize how much could be accomplished by using the tools together. Auto allows you to easily package and release a component library you’ve created in Storybook.

Attendees to this hybrid fireside chat/workshop will learn from Chroma founder Dominic Nguyen and Auto creators, Adam Dierkens and Andrew Lisowski, about how open source led to their discovery of the complementary nature of their tools. Attendees will also learn how to create and edit React components and then package and release them, getting a sense of how Storybook and Auto work both separately and together.This mixed fireside chat and workshop will be moderated by Rocio Montes, Intuit Open Source Tech Leader.
