Govcamp 2012 preview

With just over a week to go until Govcamp2012, we’re taking a quick look at what we can look forward to on 20th and 21st January!

UKGovcamp is all about people making the time to talk, listen and think about how digital changes the way the UK government works.

Conversations around this digital change have already begun - a lot of anticipation has been building on Twitter (#ukgc12) surrounding the event and on Govcamp’s forum group. As the sessions are unconferenced and crowdsourced, there are plenty of you who are really looking forward to talking about things that interest you.

Day one will be in the usual Govcamp style of no predefined agenda where sessions are agreed at the start of the day. All sessions resulting from the discussion will be posted on a huge grid on the wall for participants to choose from.

Day two is the all new GovCamp ‘Doing Things Day’, where all attending can dream up some cool stuff to do – whether it’s collaborating on the best social media strategy ever, running training sessions on how to create video or building a useful app.

All in all it will be a great even and will no doubt throw up some very interesting topics for discussion. I will be attending Govcamp along with several Microsoft colleagues. We will be providing Twitter coverage from the event to make sure every interesting discussion, interview or idea doesn’t get missed. At the end of each day, we will also be reviewing what has taken place in our blog. For a live stream of parts of Govcamp, check the Govcamp website's buzz page during the event.

The conversation doesn’t stop when Govcamp does of course, it will and must continue. Why not let us know what you’d like to discuss at Govcamp 2012? You can get involved plus follow all the action from Govcamp 2012 and beyond via:
