This is the direction page for the Foundations group which is part of the Manage stage of the DevOps lifecycle and is responsible for the following categories:
|Design System||Direction page||GitLab Pajamas internal design system and processes.||Viable|
|Navigation and Settings||Direction page||All ways to navigate and configure GitLab||TBD|
|Documentation||Direction page||GitLab's Documentation and related tooling||N/A|
Two factors help us set the direction for Foundations:
Foundational experience: Cross-stage UIs and user workflows that should be consistent, clearly designed, and iterated on like a feature to improve the overall user experence of GitLab.
Some examples of foundational experiences that drive our direction:
We are considering naming this to Pajamas so we can leave the Design System category to go after market opportunities and features. Currently we are migrating legacy components to use Pajamas, which requires us to create issues and migration guides.
We've kicked off a User Research Study to discover the mental modal of our personas that use GitLab's navigation.
The Technical Writing team are the main contributors to our documentation site. We are supporting but not actively working on improvements. In the future, we could craft workflows between GitLab and our Docs.
