How to stay up to date

Channels, meetings and groups that keep you in the loop with Backpack.

Check out the monthly updates

Every month there's a written update packed with links, diagrams and shoutouts for anyone who has helped make something happen. It covers anything from new components, style changes, ongoing discussions, BPK Beta components, deprecated and replaced components, to new documentation.

It's lightweight, fast, and easy to digest. Enjoy.


Join the Backpack bi-weekly meeting

There's a bi-weekly meeting as a squad to go through the backlog. It shows what’s moving through the design process before it's handed over to Engineering.

It’s on Fridays at 11 am – ask the Backpack Team for an invite.


Listen in on the Backpack Advocates meeting

Every other Friday the Backpack Advocates 🥑 meet to discuss what’s happening in design. This feeds into the Click-up board of backlog items.
