246: Cats & Design Systems (feat. Diana Mounter & Brent Jackson)

Today, we dipped into a double-guest episode with our friends Diana Mounter and Brent Jackson!
Diana and Brent are some of the best people working on design systems today, and in this episode we get to dig into the tools and workflows they've developed when working on systems, what they're excited about in design systems, and we even get technical to talk about the technologies that are change the way we build.

Very cool video! Seems great for fast and slow network speeds. Medium speeds kind seem to take a bit of a hit because you want to prevent the spinner from flashing in and out but I imagine thats not the majority of your traffic.

I'm curious how you all are handling design systems when it comes to native apps that cross platform with some overlap on design, but some are more representative of what's native on the respective OS
