Government cross-channel engagement in a digital world

The team at Reading Room are putting on an event in Canberra on Dec 2nd. Here’s the brief;

“Despite spending enormous amounts on Web-based initiatives, government agencies report concerns in keeping up with the pace of digital channel change. In a multi device / multi-channel world people are expecting personalised experiences that span across and cater for the individuals needs in browsers, mobile, social & apps. By employing new engagement models, applying user-centric thinking to service design and embracing user participation, agencies can raise the effectiveness of their digital footprint.”

Three presentations..

Pia Waugh
ICT Policy Advisor, Office of The Hon Senator Kate Lundy
Public Engagement: How to master the black art of crowdsourcing great ideas and community feedback

Tim Hill
User Experience consultant, Reading Room
Government Gets Social: Examples of effective Government communication in social media

Mark Szulc
Director of Solution Consulting, Adobe Asia Pacific
Building context aware experiences in a multi-channel environment: Content has moved over to a new king…Context.

Pia & Tim are great presenters so if you are planning to be in Canberra that morning make sure you register!

cfObjective Australia 2011.. now with Flex! – See you there?

cfObjective Australia is coming up fast.. just a few weeks to go! Held Nov 17 & 18 in Melbourne Australia. There is a star line up of presenters including Terry Ryan, James Talbot, Kai Koenig, Marc Mandel, Geoff Bowers, Justin McLean and .. and me! ūüôā

I’ll be presenting a talk on Model Driven Development in the Flex stream. Thats right.. there is an entire stream of presentations for Enterprise Flex Developers.. now you’re interested right?

From the organisers;
cf.Objective(ANZ) + Flex 2011 doesn’t focus as such on Livecycle or ADEP – but our Flash Platform and Flex track is the finest conference content Australia and New Zealand has to offer for this field. If your organisation is in the Asia-Pacific region and looking into building Rich Clients with an LC or ADEP backend – cf.O(ANZ) + Flex 2011 is the place you want to send your developers and architects to for learning about the front end and integration part.

The program is available online here:

On Nov 16 there are also a few excellent full-day workshops happening¬†and we’d like to see them get a bit more uptake as well.¬†

The most interesting ones for Flex/LC/ADEP developers are:
РDeveloping Performant Flex Components for Desktop and Mobile (Mike Labriola)
РBuilding Mobile Applications for Android and iOS using Flex (James Talbot)
РAgile Technical Practices for Rich Client Developers (Sandy Mamoli and Kai Koenig)
