LocalGovCamp Fringe Friday 2014 was part of LocalGovCamp 2014. It featured two events:

LocalGov Makers Day

LocalGov Makers, partnered by Nesta, ran a hack day with the aim to collaborate and prototype solutions to some of the challenges facing citizens and local government.

Organisations opened their APIs to help attendees to create their prototypes – these includes NHS Choices, Ordnance Survey and the Environment Agency.

The event wasn’t only for coders and developers but for service managers, content designers and frontliners too. There was plenty of user needs and user experience done on the day to create the requirements for the prototypes.

FutureGov Leaders’ Summit

The Leaders’ Summit, partnered by CapacityGRID and FutureGov, brought together senior officers and politicians to hear from digital leaders in the sector and workshop service design techniques.

Each speaker gave a five minute lightning talk and you can see the videos by following the links in this list:

Delegates from the Leaders’ Summit were then invited to join those from the hack day to see making in action throughout as well as presentations of prototypes on the three challenges.
