Roll Call: FCC .Gov Developer Meet-Up

We are just five days away from the second FCC .Gov  /Developer Meet-Up being held in the FCC Commission meeting room April 16 from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT. The .Gov /Developer Meet-up will introduce federal agencies with /developer resources on their own hosted websites to the /developer community. This event fosters the community of government transparency through sharing of open data.

The .Gov /Developer Meet-Up is designed to expose the /developer community to majority of the .Gov and developer resources currently in production and projects that agencies plan to release in upcoming months.  We have classified this event as ‘meet-up’ instead of traditional code sprint to harbor a more informal atmosphere for the developer community to share ideas.

We have an outstanding line-up, including video remarks from FCC Chairman Genachowski and an introduction and event welcome by US Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel, and other notable presenters and attendees. So far, we have confirmed over 60 attendees, and 13 government agencies will give short ignite style presentations on their published application programming interfaces (APIs) and developer resources.

The agencies presenting at the .Gov /Developer Meet-Up include: 

Each agency will give 7-10 minute ‘ignite’ talks, on APIs, or present their use cases so government can understand how their assets are being consumed from the outside. The meet-up will conclude with a networking session where /developers can interact and collaborate with the principals of each of these agencies.

To learn more about the .Gov Developer Meet-Up visit  our event page. This event will also be livestreamed and we will also be taking questions via email or via Twitter using the hashtag #FCCDevDay.
