Code for America Summit 2014

The  2014 Code for America Summit was September 22-25, 2014. Code for America is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco , Code for America believes government can work for the people, by the people in the 21st century. This was the fourth year of the Summit, and the event’s growth, energy and spirit of collaboration reflected the mood of the civic tech movement.  There’s great progress being made – and so much more to be done! Watch CfA founder Jen Pahlka’s welcome keynote, where she sums up where the organization is headed.

It was quite the 3 days:

Here is a sample of a few presentations which I thought were especially good, but check out the list to see if one speaks to you:

Digital Government: Not Complicated, Just Hard

Challenge and Partnership: Government IT and Civic Tech

Designing For and With People: Building a Digital Front Door

The Responsive City (This presentation discusses a future where fiber is the norm)

Thank you everyone who supports the Open Salt Lake Brigade this is an exciting time to get involved with your local government and realize that government can work for the people, by the people in the 21st century.
