On the day:
After a quick introduction from the organisers, anyone can pitch a session. This is how we create the session grid (the agenda). You can view all the sessions online.
I have a terrible weakness for all things shiny and tech, especially crowdsourcing sites like Kickstarter.
James Arthur Cattell
Attended my 1st UKGovCamp in 2011 when I was working in Birmingham City Council. The following year I created the online session grid at j.mp/ukgovcamp and have kept it updated since. Since 2013 I’ve volunteered and have been a lead organiser for the last couple of years.
I work at the Open Data Institute where I help people to make better use of data and create open culture in organisations. Before that, I worked in digital transformation and policy for the Home Office and Police. I’m passionate about building an open, fair and inclusive future. I believe you should sprinkle happiness, kindness and glitter over most things.
