Gif stating: I’m the new guy, nice to meet you.

TL:DR

  • I started at GDS, woop-woop!
  • I met the Design System Team, who are very passionate about making the design system better for designers and end users.
  • I’m starting to understand how complicated working on the design system is. It really is a massively complex set of challenges.

What happened?


TL:DR

  • It’s hard to guarantee learning at an unconference, without ruining the ad-hoc nature of the event
  • We’re going to add learning “around” the event at #GovCampNorth
  • We’ll be releasing the dates for these sessions soon, but in the first instance register your interest for the event


TL;DR

  • There’s a group of fab organisers planning a GovCamp event for the North
  • We’ve been planning since February, though Covid-19 has changed our plans significantly
  • We decided to go online for the first event, which we’re hoping will happen in October
  • Follow our social accounts for updates, Medium here and Twitter here
