Take a Python tour of duty at the United States Digital Service

Episode #219, published Fri, Jul 5, 2019, recorded Wed, Jun 19, 2019

In the US, we have a very interesting civil option that is quite new: The United States Digital Service. This service was created by President Obama to fix broken government software systems such as the rocky start of the healthcare system.

Developers and designers can serve in this service for as little as 3 months or as long as 4 years and they pay roughly market rates.

It's an interesting model indeed! I'm excited to have David Holmes from the US Digital Service to talk about their projects and how they are using Python to make the government work for the people.
