This is a special guest post from the folks organizing IgniteGov. We thought you’d be interested. –Josh
On Wednesday, October 27th, the Government Open Source Conference will be hosting IgniteGov, the first Ignite event to focus exclusively on open government topics. We’re hoping the thriving Portland Ignite community will join us as we welcome several local speakers on topics ranging from open data to what Bangalore and Burning Man have to teach civic planners about infrastructure planning. We’re also particularly excited to have Brady Forrest, Creator of Ignite, as one of our presenters.
IgniteGov will be held at GOSCON’s venue, The Nines. Doors open at 6:30 PM and talks begin promptly at 7 PM, so make sure to arrive early so you have time to grab a snack and drink before the festivities begin. While it’s not strictly required, we’d love it if you could RSVP to let us know you’re attending. Our venue is limited to 350 attendees, so it’ll be first come, first seated. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Here’s our speaker lineup:
The IgniteGov Team: Andy Stein, Deb Bryant, Jeff Sheltren, John M. Scott, Leslie Hawthorn, Nathan DiNiro and Selena Deckelmann
