OpenDataBC and the Province of British Columbia invite you to come and learn about the BC Developer’s Exchange!
See full details on our BCDevExchange event page (https://www.opendatabc.ca/pages/come-learn-about-the-bc-developers-exchange-and-share-your-ideas).
What is the BC Developer’s Exchange?
It’s an experiment in tech innovation and collaboration.We want to build an ecosystem of innovation and collaboration between tech entrepreneurs and British Columbia's public sector.
· Share British Columbia's public sector code, APIs and data with tech entrepreneurs and seed new business opportunities.
· Collaborate in new ways with tech entrepreneurs to develop public sector code, APIs and technology products and services.
· Build better digital services for the public sector.
As a start, the Province has joined GitHub (http://blog.data.gov.bc.ca/2015/03/the-province-of-bc-on-github). The BC Developer's Exchange is exploring new ways to incentivize contributions, including code, from developers outside government.
Who Should Attend This Event?
Tech entrepreneurs on the hunt for new business opportunities, and those interested in open data, open source code and open collaboration between the private and public sector.
