The software we’ve used to build GOV.UK

We’ve relied on a lot of software to help us build GOV.UK. From tracking the work we need to do in each sprint to managing the logs produced on our servers, we couldn’t build it without using tools that a lot of people have worked hard to make.

To acknowledge that, and to give a little insight into how we’re working, we’ve compiled a colophon listing all the software we’ve used (we did the same for the alpha and beta of GOV.UK). If we write about that software, we’ll update the colophon with relevant links so you can see how it all fits together.

So without further ado, follow this link to see the colophon for the launch of GOV.UK.

  1. Nice work, great to see the UK gov catching up :)

    I would recommend looking into Gerrit for code review (see how we do it in OpenStack as an example) as your development staff grows.
