Like never before, nonprofits and government agencies can increase their impact and reach through the clever promotion of their data. Organizations want to fling open the doors to these walled gardens and share their digital assets and projects – but the key to doing this successfully lies in engaging those essential developer communities who can make that data easily accessible.

Drawing on the latest literature and lessons from developers and community managers, the Forum One team has developed a series of expert recommendations and best practices that organizations like yours can follow to create and sustain a successful developer community around your data.

This presentation is based on a 45-minute webinar (http://youtu.be/ZKcqj1bCTL0) in which we explore the opportunities and challenges of unlocking your secret garden of data, and what it takes to build, grow, and market a developer community around that resource.

From this webinar you will learn:

• Where to find developers and how to engage with them

• The role of a community manager and why you need one
• A "To Do" list for starting up your developer community 

• Best practices for celebrating success

Who should view the webinar:
-Communications managers, developers, and anyone interested in open data!

Presented by:
Eric Davis – Project Director, Forum One
Ned Baker – Marketing Manager, Forum One (Moderator)
