Gov:West goings on

Gov|West the mini-conference I am putting together for the Bath Digital Festival has really come together over the last few days. The plan is to have eight or nine 20 minute case study talks from some smart folk doing cool digital stuff either in or for the public sector with most of the speakers being pretty local.

There is a bit of a mix of local & central government, a couple of NDPBs and some local companies who work with the public sector and a strict no pitching policy!

Topics include moving to the cloud, the new cookies legislation, content strategies and the Government single domain project amongst others.

The draft schedule looks something like this with beers sponsored by Eduserv in the Cork after🙂 I think it will be a really interesting afternoon and look forward to seeing a god crowd (especially as I am not inflicting a talk by me on anyone!)
