And so we’re revealed… AlphaGov

Last time I got round to writing weeknotes I mentioned an exciting new project. I wasn’t meant to say much about it, which is part of the reason that was the last time I got round to writing weeknotes. But today a post on the Cabinet Office digital engagement blog took the wrappers off and we can begin to talk about what we’re up to.

For the past few weeks we’ve been hard at work on an alpha version of a new “single domain” website for the UK government. From the first time I chatted with Tom about the project it was clear it was going to be something special, and an opportunity not to miss. And so far it’s certainly that. We’ve got a great team working flat out to produce something very special–though I should heavily emphasise that it will be an alpha release–for release early in May.

Hopefully the schedule will allow me to talk a bit more about what we’re working on, or at least about my contributions as Tech Lead. But that schedule’s tight, so I’m not promising anything!

In the meantime you might like to check out Jemima Kiss’ piece on the Guardian PDA blog or Simon Dickson’s piece.
