Design System und Kultur bei Trivago [GERMAN]
Christoph Reinartz ist UI/UX Engineer und Fullstack Developer bei Trivago. Wir sprechen in unserem Interview mit ihm über das bei Trivago eingeführte Design System und die Kultur der Produktteams. Der Podcast ist hier zu finden
"Um die Designer und Product Owner mit an Bord zu holen geht es ja auch darum, eine gemeinsame Sprache zu entwickeln. Damit die Leute ein gemeinsames Verständnis haben, von dem was man macht."
An interview I've done after my talk at Code Europe in Wroclaw.
"Trivago is just starting a career in Poland, but it is not a young portal. Like most of the sites that have been running for a few years, they have finally "aged" and grown in a way that has to be sorted out. Recently, Trivago has undergone a thorough redevelopment of the interface, not only from the visual point of view, but also from the assumptions itself.
Trivago has created a language of design and a framework that will open this year. Christoph Reinartz, who talked about this at Code Europe, compared the new design language to Lego, a design system that provides ready-made components and allows us to focus on usability and ease of use."
I had the pleasure to do a podcast with the very nice people from Working Draft. The topic has been CSS Refactoring and next to me Jens Grochtendreis joined this session as a Guest. It has been a very nice chat about CSS and Frontend Development. You can hear the podcast here
I have been invited by Andreas Sander to remote join the Webdeveloper Stammtisch Saar and answer some question related to CSS refactoring. It has been a lovely chat over nearly 90 minutes and it has been a lot of fun answering the questions. Definitely a very nice experience. The session has been recorded. You can find it here. The whole session was in german though.
Cristiano kicked-off a side project - To BEM or not to BEM a series of interviews of different people that have used the BEM methodology on large CSS projects (on "real world" websites and applications, not simply "hello world" examples) to gather their feedback and opinions, to try to understand their learnings and experiences.
I feel very pleased that the idea about this project apparently came up while reading one of my articles on Medium. Once again this showed me how important experience sharing is.
