At Uber, we've built a cross-platform design system with hundreds of thousands of weekly Figma inserts and an accompanying super plugin. But like everyone, we started with only a few components and multiple one-off plugins. We've carefully matured our design system through data and heart. Yet it hasn't been straightforward. There's a constant tension between what designers and developers need and how we interpret data. These growing pains only seem to get worse the more a system evolves. In this session, we'll show you that data and heart don't have to be at odds as we share how we mature our design system and plugins. Through demos of AI-driven tooling, we'll explore the role data can play in the future and help your team scale your system by balancing numbers with heart.

Sounds a bit simplistic to call qualitative research « heart »
Felt that it is too much getting things right. I remember a statement from Dyson," I think a lack of experience is a great help. An expert who thinks he knows all but also rather inhibited by his experience and knowledge and he finds it difficult to steear away from the common path."
All of this work to create cohesion and coherence comes at a price: bureaucracy. The more streamlined everything has to be, the less space there is for innovation.
