Event description

Description

Our next cross-government API event is on the 13 November and will be hosted by DWP near its offices in Newcastle.

The event will bring together those in government actively involved in API development to share stories and best practice about the work they are doing.

All our events are aimed at helping us learn from each other and move towards common standards, with the hope of creating more interoperability.

We have opened this event up to suppliers, as well as those from central and local government. Please register with your work email address and remember to bring ID with you on the day (this can be your government pass).
