Two Sides of the Same Coin: From Journalism to Civic Tech

In December, I began my own new adventure with Digital Services Georgia, a team within state government that helps agencies improve how they serve their constituents.

Journey to the top of Maslow’s pyramid with GovHub

The DSGa team just finished migrating 80+ websites to GovHub, Georgia’s official digital platform powered by Drupal 8. While this may seem like the end of a long trip, the real journey is just about to begin!

Link Collections

Link Collection is our most commonly used block type, and they are on nearly every GovHub site. Do you have a bunch of related stuff that you need to link to? Well then do I have the block for you…

Your Site Has Deployed. Now What?

Digital Services Georgia has nearly finished migrating the websites of more than 80 agencies to Georgia GovHub, the state’s new digital platform.

Now the real work begins.

Added Security with Federated User Authentication

Digital Services Georgia is introducing federated authentication for all websites migrating to Drupal 8; providing content management access to multiple sites on the GovHub platform through a single set of login credentials.

Tiles

For the past couple years, we’ve used Tiles as a way to visually feature multiple pieces of highly important content. So far in Drupal 8, you’d only been able make Tiles with the Image and Image with Text layouts. Now we’ve added a third type of Tile to GovHub sites: Icons. Think of it as Icon List’s bolder, stronger cousin.

With the People: Introducing pilot.georgia.gov

The Digital Services Georgia (DSGa) team is excited to launch pilot.georgia.gov. This pilot site is more than a facelift to the existing Georgia.gov website; it’s a modern way of managing content and interactions.

What Our Engineering Team Wants You To Know

What's one thing engineers wish project stakeholders understood about web developers/development? We asked the question and here are the responses.

Designing with Crisis in Mind

The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) contacted GTA’s Office of Digital Services (DSGa) with hopes of joining GovHub. 

Why Use Wireframes?

We have colors, we have fonts, we have photos… Why not use them?

Wireframes allow you to scale back and focus on what is important.
