    What's the best place to start at if I want use Gov.uk's front-end code as well. I know about https://github.com/alphagov but there are so many projects on it I honestly don't know where to start.

    I'm even more interested in the back-end stuff. How do you manage all the content? I found out about https://www.gov.uk/performance/dashboard and https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/user-centered-design/writing-government-services.html and https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/user-centered-design/resources/writing-for-transactions.html
    But do you have information on your editorial process and tools?

    Great example of the benefits of international cooperation on the 'little' things as well as on high profile policies. Having worked for both the NZ and UK governments this is a really good move - NZ govt sites are currently in a similar place to where UK govt sites were pre-GOV.UK (i.e., of variable quality, uncoordinated/duplicative, difficult to search). Moving to a single site using a tried-and-tested design/methodology is a good step forward.
