A hidden invitation to developers is within the code of the new White House website. The code invites people to apply for the United States Digital Service.
This is cool to see and I’m glad the federal government is regaining some competence, but this isn’t unique to the USDS. Putting messages in the DevTools console or HTML source is a common practice for organizations looking for new hires. I’ve seen this on various google sites, dev.to, and various other developer centric forums.
Heh, that’s sincerely kinda cute.
I’ve heard of the USDS before. Sounds like it would be an interesting place to work, except that they want people to be based in commuting distance to DC, and I can’t see myself moving.
