Half a decade on, GDS remains committed to its original principles: building and supporting services that put the user first. Here are some of the things I am looking forward to us working on in the next year.
GDS turns 5 this week (officially on Thursday 8 December), and we’re celebrating all week.

This week, there has been a series of events running across the country to celebrate National Get Online Week. We also announced the GDS charity of the year, Dragon Hall.
We hold all-staff meetings to share what we’ve achieved and talk about what we’ll be doing next. People wanted to try an ‘unconference’ so everyone could get more involved.
Earlier this month we welcomed a group of GCSE and A-Level computing students into GDS from north London comprehensive school Fortismere.
