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:
- Census Bureau
- Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
- Department of Transportation
- Department of Education
- Energy Information Administration
- Department of Energy
- Environmental Protection Agency
- General Service Administration
- Department of Health & Human Services
- Department of Labor
- National Renewable Energy Laboratory
- Small Business Administration
