Data Points Podcast Episode 22 – Code for America Summit

The GovEx team attends events around the country (and world if you listened to our IODC recap). One of our favorite events each year is the annual Code for America summit. The summit covers a variety of topics ranging from casual conversations with civic tech leaders to hands-on workshops on how to unlock the power of data in communities. With an exciting slate of sessions, including several led by GovEx staff, the annual summit is a great opportunity to reflect on the state of civic technology and plan for improved practice.

Several GovEx staff attended this year’s summit in Oakland and they gathered on this week’s episode to reflect on their experiences. Each had a unique experience at the summit, given their roles and past history with the civic tech movement. Listen in as GovExers Beth Blauer, Andrew Nicklin, Sheila Dugan, and Sophia Dengo talk all things Code for America.
