REACT 127: Building Component Libraries with Kathryn Grayson Nanz

Senior Frontend Engineer Kathryn Grayson Nanz joins the React Round Up team to talk about all things component libraries. Kathryn shares her experiences building not one but two component libraries, as well as tips and tricks on the benefits of shared libraries, how to get buy in from product and developer teams, the best way to set up libraries and keeping them up-to-date. She also shares pitfalls to try and avoid when getting started with building a new library. Definitely a good listen for anyone debating whether an existing library or a brand new, custom one is the way to go for a project.
