What's a GovCamp then?
GovCamps are self organised unconferences for people that work in and around government. They're free; have no set, pre-defined agenda; focus on attendee participation; integrate with online stuff and are relentlessly positive, constructive and creative. GovCamps enable folk interested in developing innovation and technology in government to come together in an informal setting to share their ideas. And eat pizza.
What's on the agenda
Nothing yet! (see above). Last year we talked about:
- open data
- G cloud
- Digital Scotland
- Big Society
- linked data
- law and computers
- barriers to engagement
- lots of other stuff
This year, we're trying something a wee bit different. Alongside the more 'traditional' discussion/presentation sessions there will be parallel hacking sessions - during which we can actually make some stuff! You can get involved in one or t'other, or dip in and out of both. Book a ticket for the option that you think you'll spend most time on, but it's fine or even expected that people will swap between the two parts of the event.
Add yourself to our Google Map to see if anyone else is going in your direction. There may be opportunities for car sharing, etc.
Keep in touch!
