PR – Bill introduced to create Ofice of Government Information Technology

Along with the bill, an event:  The Puerto Rico Tech Summit, June 6, at the San Juan Convention Center, to showcase what is possible under the right governance structure.

At the Tech Summit there were over 900 people gathered not to just talk but to act upon Puerto Rico’s future.  For the highlight of the event — beyond an impressive panel of speakers — was an all-day hackathon, running concurrently with the “main” event, leveraging a big first for Puerto Rico:  the open sharing of 10 different sets of data from Puerto Rican government and quasi-government (businesses that serve the Puerto Rican public) entities.
