Nonprofit Software Development Summit, Feb 21 - 23
You can hear podcasts by Gregg Swanson and Teresa Crawford, or read the transcripts, at Britt Bravo's Netsquared blog.
Britt did a very fine job of describing the conference outcomes at the bottom of her blog page. HumaniNet led the conference sessions on Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance Tools, covering topics such as:
- What software and other ICTs do field users need in a disaster response?
- What software is ready for use in emergencies today?
- What needs to be done to make information management a reality?
- Are mapping and geographic information systems possible and affordable?
- For our field and relief team partners: if you had a team of developers to design and test any software you wished for, what would that be?
Join our online discussion group and tell us what is available now and what you think is needed. All comments are welcome.
