At SPA2010 last week Matt Wynne organised a BoF session around how we can change the way the UK government delivers software. We had a really constructive discussion and lots of actions came out of it, one of them being to set up a group for people who are interested in getting involved to effectively communicate and bring together our collective knowledge and abilities, create a bit of a movement.
If you are interested in actively getting involved (rather than just commenting from the sidelines) please sign up:
In a few days I will publish the actions we identified from the discussion and we will be looking for people eager to take on some of the tasks.
P.S. Don’t worry about the name if you don’t like it. It is likely to change and not the most important thing to be discussing at these early stages.
Without wishing to be flippant, but have either of you worked on Government IT projects? What were your personal experiences?
Nor us personally but many others in the discussion had been. Experiences were generally poor
