Podcast: Technologists at GDS
28 July 2021Blog post
On this month’s podcast, we talk coding in the open and explore the breadth and depth of what technologists do at GDS.
Discover more about what’s next for digital identity in government.
Rachel Tsang and Ross Ferguson discuss how the GOV.UK roadmap will contribute to GDS’s mission of building a simple, joined-up and personalised experience of government for everyone.
Our work on GOV.UK Accounts is one of the most important ways for us to implement our ambitious vision, so we wanted to give an update on its role we see it playing.
User researchers across GDS programmes share their personal experiences and what they’re working on right now, as part of the GDS Strategy.
Tom Read, Chief Executive Officer of the Government Digital Service, sits down with us to chat about his first few months and what’s next for GDS.
