We’re bringing 3 government data communities together on 16 March to talk about how we maintain structured data and APIs over time, and what data we consider to have potential archival value.
Rosalie Marshall, GDS, Lead Technology Advisor
Our recent Tech Talks event on interoperability and open standards featured talks from Dan Appelquist, Lorna Mitchell and Kin Lane, and we’re also hosting a couple of events on APIs and data management.
We’ve got our next API and data exchange meet-up coming up in Newcastle on 13 November. It’s being hosted by DWP, and is open to suppliers as well as those from central and local government.
The Government Digital Service (GDS) has created an API catalogue on GitHub to increase transparency across government, start conversations and improve data sharing.
Find out how you can get an API domain on GOV.UK and what updates we’ve made to the API and data standards.
The fifth API and Data Exchange Community of Practice event in Leeds focused on tech and data standards, API strategies, data streaming, documentation and more.
Find out about the Canadian government’s cross-government API Store, how the DVSA improved staff morale with mobile working, tips on delivering APIs as a product manager and more.
Over 15 government organisations actively involved in API development will share their strategies on meeting user needs, security, accessibility and more.
