Sunny Conf 2010

There's a good chance that you've already heard of the Sunlight Lab's and their mission of opening up government to make it more transparent, accountable and responsible. With the explosion of interest around government transparency, developers and designers are uniquely qualified to make a difference in the kinds of applications we use on a day-to-day basis. The Open Government Movement is spearheaded by open source developers and wants to turn open government data into citizen-focused, civic minded applications. Luigi will join us at SunnyConf to talk about the Government 2.0 landscape. In this talk, you'll learn about the data sets and APIs available freely for your use, the tools and skills you'll need to be a successful civic-minded developer, and a thorough overview of the current civic apps out there. Civic coding will enhance your open source portfolio while making a difference in your community and country. Come learn how developers can change cities, states, and countries for the better.
