Open Source Policy

Creating value beyond code

<p>In this lighting talk we want to talk about the potential of open source not only for code, but also for policy documents.</p> <p>One of the pillars to promote open government at any level of government is that there should exist an open data policy. However, in the Mexican context, although one already exists at the federal level, very few states and municipalities have open data policies. This is partly due to the lack of knowledge and culture about open government, especially at the municipal level.</p> <p>From Codeando México we work to promote citizen participation and open government, and we have carried out several exercises to co-create open data policies with the three levels of government: federal, state and municipal.</p> <p>With this experience, we saw the need for the creation of an open data policy with a free use license. This policy, a work in progress, will be hosted in an open repository, will allow any level of government that wants to have an open data policy to adopt it and adapt it to their needs in a short time.</p> <p>This project is nourished not only by the experience of Mexican civil society of the last 10 years but also, being an open source project, it will be in continuous evolution and improvement with the contributions of governments, civil society and any interested citizen.</p>

<p>In 2017, Italy launched a key initiative to improve public services by opening up the development of a handful of core technologies and allowing an open governance community to gather around public code. The effort resulted in the launch of two projects: Developers Italia and Designers Italia, which started a virtuous ecosystem involving administrations, businesses, and enthusiasts who want to improve public services and citizens' lives. Today, the two communities attract over 20.000 ...

<p>A strong organization is an important part of governing a public code base. The association OS2 scores their IT-solutions after a governance model divided into three levels, which shows the maturing of the code and the organization surrounding it. This talk will cover lessons learned and why scoring is not enough.</p>
