Event Details


Capitol Camp 2011 is an “unconference” and Developer's Summit that brings together government technology stakeholders under the roof of the New York State Capitol Building to share challenges and solutions.  We hope to build on the success of prior Capitol Camp events to further engage and expand this community, as a key component of leveraging technology to build a more transparent, efficient, and participatory government for all New York State citizens.

Capitol Camp 2011 is organized and hosted by the New York State Senate and the New York State Office of the Chief Information Officer/Office for Technology (CIO/OFT).
Capitol Camp 2011 spans two days: a "Developer's Summit” for programmers on Thursday, October 20; and an “unconference”targeting a wider audience of both technical and non-technical participants on Friday, October 21. Both events are held in the Legislative Office Building, in Albany, from 10:00am to 5:00pm, with a break for lunch. Participants can purchase lunch at nearby restaurants and cafeterias.
The main "unconference" will consist of higher level, less technical, interactive sessions that examine the intersection of government and technology. The Developer’s Summit, primarily for programmers, is a day-long conversation about coding, collaborative software development and best practices. The conversation will involve hands-on work in open-source applications currently used in New York State Government. 

Both days will be framed within the context of three thematic tracks. Event participants will select specific session topics within each track on the day of the event. Visit the CapCamp2011 Wiki – barcamp.org/capcamp2011 to see a list of proposed sessions, or to make a proposal.  Session presentations will be available on the CapCamp2011 Wiki Please contact Dean Hill (dhill@nysenate.gov) to propose a session.

Capitol Camp 2011 Tracks

1) Open Government - This track will cover how government can use technology to: 1) increase transparency, 2) provide data platforms used both across governmental units as well outside of government, and 3) more effectively engage/collaborate with the public through approaches such as social media and crowdsourcing tools.

2) E-Government Services - This track will examine how government entities use technology to provide services to the public today, challenges faced (technical, political, and policy-based) during the implementation of services, as well as opportunities for the development of new and innovative service delivery mechanisms.

3) Gov 2.0 Enabling Technologies - This track will focus on the underlying technologies and tools that government can (or could) use to more effectively interface with the public. Examples include open source software, mobile applications, and cloud computing.
