An emptier week than usual due to the civil service strike on Wednesday, which meant I had a day not working.

This week I

  • investigated a couple of tools to help us see Kanban metrics for GitHub Projects
  • kicked-off an investigation into progressive enhancement on our components and patterns
  • had a great chat with our new comms & engagement folks
  • joined a release party for govuk-frontend v4.5.0
  • drafted a framework to help us decide which prioritised style, component or pattern to work on next
  • ran a workshop to decide on next steps for the Exit this Page component, and
  • caught up with one of our designers on the GOV.UK brand and what service teams might do about apps.

I’m having a restful weekend so won’t explore these in any great detail, but feel free to reach out if you want to chat about any of these in particular.
