Guest Blog from Microsoft | Mobile Solutions Connecting Citizens with Government

Mobile Solutions Connecting Citizens with Government On behalf of Kevin Koh, Director, Government Solutions, Microsoft Government agencies often deal with the same types of issues as other businesses. With increased pressures to cut costs, minimize risk, and keep pace with change, government agencies need modern, secure and affordable mobile solutions to ensure their employees are able to stay connected and productive wherever they are. Government ultimately exists – whether it be local, state, or federal – to serve the populace and to give a voice to the community. Being able to easily connect with colleagues and citizens while in the office or on the go empowers employees to do their job more effectively by using the best means of communications for the situation. Having access to a familiar and consistent experience across a variety of devices based on their needs is very important as well. Government organizations are interested in...

Open Salt Lake Brigade: An Inside Look

In my previous post, I shared how I came to discover Code for America, become involved and ultimately become a Brigade Captain for Open Salt Lake. Now, I'd like to share a little bit about how the Brigade works and a couple of the projects we've been working on. The Open Salt Lake Brigade has 7-10 core members who conduct weekly meetings and are highly committed to this cause. A critical element in making our projects a success is that several of our members are employees of the City of Salt Lake. For example, Nole Walkingshaw, Brigade Captain for Open Salt Lake, is the Planning Programs Supervisor for the City of Salt Lake. Additionally, one of our members, Bill Haight, is the CIO of the City of Salt Lake and has actively attended our meetups and sponsors the group’s activities. Through these individuals, we are not only able to better...

My Journey with Code for America: From Discovery to Brigade Captain

Many of you have heard of Code for America by now and the amazing work this organization is doing to improve communication between citizens and their government agencies through technology. If you haven’t, Code for America believes that in order to improve government, we must improve citizenship. The organization helps cities create 21st century interfaces to government that are simple, beautiful and easy to use. Deploying technologies that make it easier for your agency to engage with citizens to improve your city not only builds trust, but it also changes the conversation between government and its citizens. Back in 2012, I didn’t know anything about Code for America. As the senior software architect for a provider of civic engagement solutions headquartered in the Bay Area, however, I was eager to evangelize the Accela Civic Platform and what it had to offer developers. This quest to bring our message to developers would...

Today's guest blog post comes from Code for America , an Accela partner and attendee at Accela Engage: 2013 User Conference in San Diego this week: By Ashley Meyers, Development and Engagement Manager, Code for America A year ago, when I first met Maury Blackman, CEO of Accela , and Kris Trujillo, then senior software architect (since promoted to Director of Software Development), we spoke about support for the 2013 Oakland Fellowship project . Little did I know that Accela would become a generous corporate sponsor of our 2013 programs and a partner on open data and data standards.
