December isn’t just the time of year we celebrate the holidays, it’s also a great time to look back at our successes. As such, we put together a list of some of the top blog posts from 2018. With many thanks to our partners, we’ve accomplished a lot that we’re all very proud of, but we’re just getting started. Here’s to 2019!

Hello, Canada

Aaron Snow, Chief Executive Officer
“Let me start with this: I wake up every day excited about what we do and what lies ahead.”

Use the tools that you need to do good work

Sean Boots, Policy team
“We ask team members what tools they need to do their best work, and then we find a way to get them.”

Moving content from code to cloud

Steve Astels and Stephen McMurtry, Developers
“Not only are the developers happy, but designers and content owners, at both CDS and VAC, are now able to change content as needed, quickly and easily.”

How we used the Global Skills Strategy to hire experienced international talent

Meera Makim Cunningham, Operations
“Our team’s international vibe not only enriches us, but it also helps us learn from the experiences of other countries and digital services.”

Bringing together policy and digital delivery

CDS Policy Team

“We aim to clear the path for delivery in a replicable way, by learning from and documenting each situation we face, and by building tools and guidance that can be used again in the future.”

Productive collaboration: how to build a workflow that works across disciplines

Eman El-Fayomi, Acting Head of Design
“It boils down to crafting a multidisciplinary approach to team process and creating an organized workflow that meets everyone on the team where they already feel comfortable operating and contributing.”

Reducing risk through continuous deployment

Jason White, Head of Data Science
“Deploying each change, every day, has many benefits. The deployment mechanism is completely automated and reliable. Each change is very small and therefore minimizes risk.”
