'Ignite: For Good' presentation 7: LocalGovDigital: End of Level Boss of Digital by Default, Dan Hilton

This is Dan Hilton's presentation which he gave during the 'Ignite: For Good' evening mySociety hosted on 29th October 2014 as part of the Bath Digital Festival. Description: If the whole of the public sector needs to become digital by default, then local government needs to be able to deploy and run digital services without hiring every maker in Western Europe. We need methods so simple that we can enable even the smallest public sector organisation (think parish council, board of governors at a primary school) to be able to run the very best in digital services, on bootstrapped start-up budgets.
