Event description


What's this about?

Skylight is conducting a fun, interactive, online workshop with as many people as possible to brainstorm and vote on what types of data, content, and other resources would be most useful and valuable to Veterans and their supporters if made more available and accessible on the web, mobile devices, and other platforms.

Why are we doing this?

Skylight's supporting the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA's) new Lighthouse initiative. The purpose of this program is to make more effective use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). APIs make it easier for computer systems to talk to each other, such as sharing data. And are an important piece to improving how services are delivered to Veterans, both by the VA and other support organizations, in today's digital age.

We need your help recommending to the VA what types data, content, etc. it should focus on making more available and accessible via APIs. Teamwork makes the dreamwork!

Who should join the workshop?

Anyone with insightful ideas on what we should recommend to the VA! Veterans, caregivers, non-profit Veteran support organizations, and others are all welcome.

No technical knowledge is required. No preparation is required. And no one will be judged. It'll be a safe, collegial environment for everyone.
