Final preparations are underway, on both sides of the Atlantic, for Invotra’s first trip to San Francisco to sponsor 2016’s Code for America summit.
Of all the US conferences and events, no other public sector audience is as advanced in understanding the importance of digital evolution, user-centered design and the necessity for an improved use of digital across Government. Invotra are thrilled to align with the most advanced conversations in the United States around the crucial role of digital in this space.
The CFA summit brings together over 500 government representatives from over 150 unique Governments. Attendees include Chief Innovation Officers, Chief Information Officers, Digital Service Unit Leads, Department Heads, Policy makers, and elected officials at the Federal, State & Local level, as well as CEO’s, start-up founders and developers.
This year, themes include agile development in a public sector setting, content management systems for Government, and increasing the talent pool of technologists in public service.
The summit's keynote speakers include:
⦁ Tony Scott, US CIO, The White House
⦁ Marina Martin, CTO of the Veterans Association
⦁ Robin Carnahan, Director of State & Local Practice, 18F
⦁ Cecilia Muñoz, Director of the Domestic Policy Council, The White House
⦁ Dr. DJ Patil, US Chief Data Scientist
⦁ Jennifer Pahlka, Founder, Code for America & former US Gov CTO
Our panel session, chaired by Ian Kalin, Chief Data Officer, Department of Commerce will focus on SME’s overcoming procurement issues to work with large Government departments - a topic on which Fintan will no doubt have some insight to share!
