I definitely like the idea of using the system to document the process as well! We generally try to flag our internal docs as something we want added to our documentation site early on, so we can iterate quick on google docs/notion then work on publishing as well.

We are using Notion at the moment, but its only for our team of 5 engineers, so we migrate individual docs to Google docs when we want to share with other teams / our design side of the design systems team.

I've found a lot of the work I do recently has been around documenting process and decisions for my team. Its a really interesting problem space, trying to get the vision of what everyone is doing from your head into a document.

Decided to update my work computer this morning, maybe it was the wrong decision to do so when I have the most free time in the day to get work done 🤔

Interesting, is that also when performance reviews happen (if you do them)?

If you do one-on-one's with your manager/direct reports, how frequently do you do them? How long are they usually as well?

🔴🔵💚💛 This is a big one. Design Systems 2.0 Proud of the effort by the Figma crew (and others)—months of designing, prototyping, writing, editing, and coding all to push the envelope for what design systems can be! ⚡️ Now Live →

Looking at writing a bunch of docs soon for something new, what is everyone using to generate nice looking docs sites these days (using MDX as the authoring format)? Gatsby? MDX-Docs? Something else?

Currently adoption is piecemeal, and different updates tend to have different drivers, some from engineering (e.g. less buggy component), some from design (e.g. a new design pattern), and others from product (some larger new ux flows) depending on scale and impact of the change.

For any design system leads out there - what role do you take in helping those who consume the system upgrade / adopt?

We are essentially doing #1 (+ migration documentation) at the moment, but would like to experiment with #2/3, either by "study abroad" (embed on feature teams) or pair programming sessions.

Going to start by sharing it internally and then may work on cleaning it up to publish externally in the future 🤞🏼

Started work on a draft of a blog post about the work my team is doing to define design tokens and what we are internally calling themes this evening. Unfortunately I think it may be too tightly coupled to a lot of Wayfair internals so may not be able to share it externally yet.
