Digging deep on dark mode with our design systems lead, Aaron Shekey.

Earlier this week, we introduced dark mode on Stack Overflow. For this episode we chat with Aaron Shekey, our design systems lead, about how he built this new feature and why it took so darn long.

You can check out more about Aaron at his website. He is a designer, developer, and musician who worked at Github and Adobe prior to joining Stack. 

You can also read Aaron’s post on how he built dark mode here. For the next 48 hours, you also have the option to try out our April Fool’s gag, Ultra Dark Mode.

The Loop, May 2020: Dark Mode

We received a bunch of requests to share how we use our feedback framework on specific features. We got excited about this, and given that we just released Dark Mode (and “Ultra Dark Mode”), we thought this was a great opportunity to show how we arrived at our solution.
