Why does everybody hate email?
Email gets a bad rap, but do we really need to code like it’s 1999?
I’m going to show you why you should rethink and reconsider email - both in its execution and as a powerful marketing tool. I’ll give you some examples of the best tools available and how to make email development smarter and quicker so you'll fall in love with email!

Platforms for working
In government we have many platforms for working.
We have the digital service standard. We have a lean model in place to help us create services. We have the belief in working agile. We have clear team structure, as well as breaking UX into “the team’s work” and putting a focus on interaction design, content design, and user research as specific roles. We have "design patterns" as guidelines. We have a prototype kit to help us kick off and kick on with making things to get in front of users. And we try to work in the open.
Now spending his time running around the country working for government, Si will talk about working in this environment – and the lessons other organisations and businesses can take from making sure they have platforms to work off as well.
You can get a taster of Si’s thoughts on this on Si’s blog
