Drupal for Public Sector Exchange is a community of best practice for those looking to implement open source technology solutions like Drupal within the public sector.
We are launching with an event focussed on Councils using Drupal, hosted at the Young Foundation with speakers Steve Purkiss and Rob Miller from Lambeth Council.
Steve Purkiss has been an Advisory board member of the Drupal Association and recently supported Brighton and Hove City Council to make the migration from costly proprietary software to the open platform Drupal.
Steve Purkiss says “Many councils and other local enterprises are adopting Drupal as their open platform of choice for building web sites and applications. Creating immersive web experiences and making the most of the latest technology requires continual innovation and by working to a common goal on a common, free, and open source project, you can affect the bottom line and innovate faster.”
This event is an ideal opportunity to become part of a community of peers. Drupal for Public Sector will offering a series of regular events with inspirational talks, informative case studies, lively discussion and shared learning opportunities.
The event is aimed at anyone with an active interest in discussing the future of the Drupal in the UK Public Sector.
Together we will learn about subjects such as gaining internal buy in, mitigating risks during times of austerity as well as how to run well managed harmonious web projects that get the most from the entire team and deliver secure web sites that exceed you expectations and deliver real impact.
