Code for America 2018

May 30, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 1, 2018 @ 5:00 pm PDT

2018’s Summit will cover four big, important themes through workshops, main stage presentations and panels and more.

Workshop Themes

  1. Product & Prototyping
  2. Design/Standards
  3. Buying Better Results
  4. Data Sharing, Data Science and Machine Learning

Every Summit has covered, in its own way, digital capability in government. In 2018, we’ll be meeting, talking and learning about how to make progress sustainable through topics like hiring, training and integrating new skills and expertise in existing organizations as well as new ones.

In 2018, we’ll be exploring what it looks like when government starts to design policy with tech at the table. How can policy design become more user-centered, data-driven and iterative? And how could that lead to better outcomes?

This session will introduce Hyperledger, The Linux Foundation’s open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. We will also present a number of existing use case tutorials that showcase service delivery using Hyperledger projects. The session will conclude with an interactive discussion with the audience about how they consider using blockchain technologies and common challenges to overcome.
