Drupal 8 comes with two extension points for module developers to allow other modules to interact with their code.
The trusty alter hook, the linchpin of Drupal versions past is still there - allowing other modules to interact and intervene in the behaviour of your module.
But there is a new kid on the block, the event system.
So as a module developer how do you decide whether to use the alter system or the event system.

The traditional approach of directly styling default Drupal markup is not a scalable solution when we consider the volatility of the modern browser ecosystem. It is now necessary for front-end developers to abstract design patterns into manageable components. By using a styleguide we can automate the process of isolating and cataloguing patterns so they can be iterated and tested against independently. In this post I discuss ideas and put forward some informal rules around managing these components from within a styleguide.
