Fierce GovernmentIT: ‘Former 18F director urges federal government to provide citizens with better digital experience’
FierceGovernmentIT reports on a talk given by Greg Godbout, former director of 18F, who insists that the user should be considered first and foremost at every step in product development.
According to a recent article from FCW, getting government agencies on board with Agile development and cloud services takes "a combination of technological finesse and evangelical spirit".
In an interview with Federal News Radio, Greg Godbout of 18F said agency demand for Agile development services is off the charts.
