New features and improved UX.
I joined Agile Collective for a week of work experience from Cherwell School in October 2022, learning all about designing for the web
DrupalCon Prague took 3 of our team out of the mix for a week but was a great opportunity to catch up with other LocalGov Drupal suppliers and promote it to new people, while the rest of us pushed forward with some new features.
Many of the team and council stakeholders were on holiday over August, so the team took the opportunity to perform some more user testing with available councils and made a number of user experiece improvements in sprint 9.

Belated sprint notes for sprint 6.
With a few of the Microsites project team away, and some social engagements to enjoy, we still made steady progress in Sprint 5: integrating findings from user testing, theme improvements and directories!
User testing of the early prototype is complete! In this sprint, we aimed to test the architecture and user experience of creating new microsites, assigning users, configuring the look and feel, and adding content to a page. With 14 users across 5 councils lined up, we invited Kayo from Telltale Research as well as our own Steph and Rae to help.
A belated update on work done in sprint 3 of the LocalGov Drupal Microsites project.
A slow start and a bank holiday reduced our resources on sprint 2, but we're going in the right direction and accelerating as we go, with some great foundational work on both the technical architecture and the wider content strategy considerations that councils need to consider before jumping to a microsite conclusion.
