Could we create a shared set of tools to provide consistent, effective, and easy-to-use government websites? We think the answer is yes.
Working in the public sector brings on a whole lot of issues you might otherwise gloss over in the private sector.
The depth and breadth of complexity can be overwhelming. It takes a certain type of person to be a public servant.
That’s why I have the utmost respect for developers who work in government. They’re trying to solve hard problems while working on products and services that touch millions of lives every day.
And I’m talking about touching millions of lives in ways that really matter, like access to healthcare or financial services. Not “delightful experiences” of time-sucking novelty apps.
