Developers and federal agencies: Can we talk?
I recently posted about the good work the EPA is doing to get the developer community involved in their challege, Apps for the Environment. As part of their effort, the agency has been hosting a series of webinars where EPA experts discuss the data and tools that are being provided for the challenge.
This Thursday at 4pm I will be appearing on one of the webinars discussing the role of government challenges and their potential to open up agency data and spur innovation. I’ll focus on what agencies can do to provide developers with the information they need and ensure that the applications that are produced are worthwhile and self-sustaining. Joining me will be:
- Alex Howard of O’Reilly Media, moderator
- Michaela Hackner of Forum One
Registration for the webinar is still open.
