On Saturday 9th March I had the privilege to attend UKGovCamp 2013, the free annual ‘unconference’ for people interested in public sector digital engagement. As the event was quickly sold out many were unable to attend so hopefully my report might be of use.
The day started with impassioned delegates pitching to fill the 35 sessions throughout the day. Everyone was then free to select which sessions to get involved with. As always, with 7 parallel sessions, it was tough to choose from the diverse set of public sector digital engagement subjects available. With everything we are doing to support the UK G-Cloud and having our service’s security pan-government accredited, I decided to attend the sessions on G-Cloud Security, Hacking Government websites and Talking about G-Cloud procurement.
