Deliberate Community Building

Clint Talbert, VP of Engineering, Nuna Inc
Emma Burnett, Code for Maine/Brigade NAC

DESCRIPTION: Building working communities is hard. It’s a different skill than building a software system, but it’s still building a system and our system design training will apply. Furthermore, there is a deep connection between the technologies we create and the capabilities we empower as a result in our communities. Working at the nexus of government, government contractors, and communities is a difficult needle to thread, but a necessary one if the government will be “by the people and for the people” in this digital age. This presentation covers a few precepts: use storytelling to lead, ensure your technology empowers the engagement, anticipating the case where “it all goes wrong”, and how does this apply to my project.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: People working with a Brigade, working on a federal contract, and/or working with/on an open source project. Any place where the folks (primarily engineers, we imagine) need to turn their systems building skills toward building a community collected around a central goal/project.
