Code for Ireland follows in the footsteps of Code For America, which was founded in 2009. Like it, Code for Ireland has attracted technologists to get involved in developing solutions in and with the Irish government and its communities.
You can read the discussion (Trello) boards for the various projects here.
Since GovCamps are user-generated unconferences – anyone can pitch a session on the day. GovCamps have been a feature of the international digital government community for years, but GovCampConnect will be the first event of its kind on the island of Ireland. We’ve chosen an amazing venue halfway between Belfast and Dublin because important things are happening in both places and we want people to share their stories.
The event is for anyone interested in how technology can transform government, including public servants, developers, suppliers and academics. Typical themes include digital transformation, open data, agile development, user-centred design, citizen engagement, open source, and smart cities. You can view examples of GovCamp sessions online.
