FCC wants to bring Web developers and agencies together

Federal agencies increasingly make data available through application programming interfaces (APIs) and Web services. But there is still no comprehensive forum for potential developers to see the full scope of available resources. The ".Gov Developer Meet-Ups" aim to fill that void.

Applications built to handle Open Government data can help users both in government and the private sector see how efficiently a given agency operates, and in some cases, help the agency use resources more effectively.

The meet-up is set to take place in room TW-C305 at 11 a.m., Monday, April 16, the agency said. Potential participants should email developer@fcc.gov by Thursday evening.
