IBM SPM Design System for Developers (9D80G)

Overview

The SPM Design System is built specifically to help create government web applications to the highest usability and accessibility standards. The Design System includes best practices, design principles, imagery, and brand style. Developers need a practical understanding of the SPM Design System so that they can develop high-quality web applications for citizens and other users. During the course, learners will install the SPM Design System, set up the development environment, develop pages using Design System components, integrate with the Cúram SPM server, and test their pages. At the beginning of the course, learners will review the main third-party technologies that are used during the course.
