Share Code for America, Open Data & the Digital Front Door

Event Details

Code for America is a non-profit that strives to help governments use technology better, to improve services for citizens. Using different programs, including fellowships for developers in local governments, civic hack-a-thons, and a peer network to share data the organization aims to create more user friendly and efficient government services. Specifically they will speak to ELGL about two initiatives Open Data and Digital Front Door.

The Digital Front Door initiative is an effort to streamline the procurement process and allow for local businesses to compete for technology and creative services contracts. This is a new effort that’s being piloted in Oakland, CA and Code for America will share how it’s going. The Open Data initiative is a movement to make government data free and easily available to the public. This data can then potentially be used to create new software, solve problems and more.

ELGL

ELGL tells the stories about people, ideas, trends and approaches in local government to make a positive difference. We believe that working creatively, harder and smarter makes our professional association unique, relevant and timely. We believe that building a network of support will attract and retain the best and brightest to the local government profession. We believe that anyone with a passion for public service can become a member, and understand that there is no longer one path to leadership.
