hi how's everyone doing today good okay so today I'm going to talk about how to tech has been changing in government okay so how often do you interact with government when I say government I mean your government it could be local it could be state

it could be federal in one year so for folks who do it twice a year raise your hands okay got a couple for folks who do it once a year doing something with government okay you got a couple couple more and no zero okay a few Zhu do you guys file taxes so uh

in the pasta I'm missing my notes in the past 12 months this is how this is on average how many people have signed into federal government websites I ask the taxes question because most folks are only interacting with government to do their taxes however

there are at the time of the creation of the slide there were for the US federal government 160 1495 people at one point on US government websites with 1.4 billion users for every 90 days there's three of you in this room right now I'm just kidding

you can find this information on analytics at and you can dig into where people are how people are using government websites on the federal level so things are happening a lot of things are happening in on the state on the local on the national and

international governments there is I'm a local level a lot of the initiatives include Code for America which was spoken about at PyCon there's the creation of CIA and CDO positions CD CIO being chief innovation officer not information officer and our

chief data officer positions at various cities like Detroit la New York so why am I talking to you today because I'm on a mission I get really really excited about this I'm on a mission to get folks involved in public service and to understand this

area better passionate public servants are the cornerstone of government if you are not excited to be a part of helping out your government and the things that you can do by the end of this talk at least you will know two things one how Django is used in government

and to some of the resources that you can find coming out of government in the open source world so let's talk about government so Who am I so I've done a lot of stuff in the jenga and Python community but since I'm here in my official capacity

today I will talk about my professional self a little bit more and I'm a former journalist that's how i came to django i worked at the Washington Post where Adrian hollowbody worked and inherited some of his code when it was a pre one point O and and

i started in general ism because of the civic mission the idea of empowering people and empowering citizens to be able to make decisions and currently i work at 18f which I'll talk about later which is a part of the federal government to me it's the

same mission it's the ability to empower people to make good decisions and to be able to offer them and get them the services that they need 18 f is just one part of the story but first of all who are you oh that doesn't seem to be showing up well

okay well you can this is a map of jinguk on attendees oh there we go I did that on purpose the jenga Khan organizes where we're nice enough to let me use this from their invites because I want to know who I was talking to and when my talk is mostly what's

happening on the public sector in the US federal government it's important to know that this movements happening all across the world every government entity has one thing in common how to best serve their people governments around the world are exchanging

on I exchanging ideas each sovereignty is also made of a unique set of beliefs to say that my cultural beliefs in in the US are different from other cultural beliefs in other countries and also regionally some things translate from culture to culture while

others do not varying views on privacy for example and trust what do you trust your government to do what do you trust your government not to do varying structures of operation within the government is is had an effect on the approaches that various governments

and and entities have taken centralized government offices versus independent and government offices so through the US example I hope you learn something today on the impact that you can make on your country on your municipality and to make the bet to make

it a better place for the people who are like you in all even in the private sector we still have this mission how do we best serve the people the people being our customers and as I said this is happening all around the world if you go on government

forward slash community you can search to you can search a whole bunch of various entities on the local state international level and you can see who's doing what you will see a huge amount of countries located internationally I can't talk about every

one of them today so I will highlight one it's kind of considered the leader in the international realm which is gut you k mmm very launched in February 2012 and there's sort of considered one of the the leading examples in government digital services

so I'm going to rewind a little bit and start telling you what's happening on the federal side of the u.s. so the library of congress and la brea congress is a was before the the launch of WK and specifically Jenga is used in the library congress's

repository development center and including Jenga python solar bell rang Redis projects include one of them is called chronicling America which you can easily Google it's an old newspaper archive that's a project that I had worked on after leaving
