Using types for design and accessibility
Anthony Muscat | @anthonyjmuscat (twitter.com/anthonyjmuscat)
When building a component library that is shared across products and developer teams around the world, it can be hard to manage developers and ensure they follow the documents - you can’t be everywhere! We will look at a better way of leveraging static types in developers tooling that can guide the developers on how use your components and meet design patterns.
Anthony is a senior front end developer at ansarada who is passionate about building great products and encouraging open thought about accessibility and security.
CSS Preprocessors: do ya need em?

Is there there any better feeling than christening a brand new code base? It's also one of the best times to re-assess your stack. Petra looks into the state of play in CSS tooling to try and weigh up the benefits and traps of our ever-growing pipeline. She'll look at build time, performance, code style and of course, developer happiness to try and answer the question, do we need CSS pre-processors?
Petra is a web developer & tech lead who's worked with teams on all sorts of websites, big and small. She's worked with Qantas, DTA, Cancer Council & currently Scentre Group.
