Pattern Libraries & WordPress - Chasing the Holy Grail

When working with WordPress, it’s common for frontend code to live within your theme; often mixing presentation with logic. Pattern Libraries help with this separation and allow you to build a backend-agnostic design system. In practice keeping the two in sync is fiddly & time consuming that makes future iteration difficult. As soon as they fall out of sync, the cons start to outweigh the pros.

This talk will show you how to maintain a clear separation between your front-end & WordPress code, without any of the integration headaches. It will also cover pattern library best practices, how to integrate a pattern library with WordPress and how embracing both can be empowering.

Presented by Adam Tomat ( - Senior full-stack dev at Rareloop ( - Advocate for progressive enhancement, accessibility and collaboration. Chasing the Holy Grail

The event starts at 6.30pm and the talk will start at 7pm.
