There are currently a few channels for technologists in UK government to share what we're working on, ask questions and build the knowledge of the community. They are:
- ukgovernmentdigital.slack.com - a slack open to anyone working in central government, with channels for a range of topics. Most central government domains are whitelisted so you should be able to just sign up.
- A cross-government architects email (google) group. This is open to anyone working on tech in central government but will be of most interest to those in senior/architectural roles. The group is invitation only but if you'd like to join send a note to email@example.com saying what you're working on and what your role is and we will follow up.
- A github repository for discussion of potential technical and data standards.
