The next meeting of OpenGovChicago will be a review of the City’s Technology Plan. City technology leaders will cover various aspects of the plan that relate to our shared work around issues like community technology, bolstering transparency and supporting civic hackers, digital literacy, entrepreneurism in the civic innovation industry, data-driven solutions, and other areas of interest to our group.
Joining us will be Brenna Berman, Chief Information Officer and Commissioner of the Department of Innovation and Technology; John Tolva, Chief Technology Officer of the City of Chicago, and Lachlan Tidmarsh, Chief Information Officer of Chicago Public Schools.
This technology plan includes the work of many members of this group, and that’s no accident. The work that we do, and the things that we care about, are now included in a comprehensive plan that is official policy of the City of Chicago. This will be a great time to review the plan in detail and talk about how our own projects relate to this work. Here's some starter-offer places on the Web:
Lots of the value of OpenGovChicago meetups occurs in the comments and in the writing and thinking that it generates around the web. Add your voice in the weeks leading up to our meeting!
