GTEC opening doors to CLF 2.O opportunities
This Wednesday (Oct. 29), Canada's Government Technology Event (GTEC) will hold the possibility of fat rewards for some sitting in on its Common Look and Feel (CLF) 2.0 Workshop, where the discussion could lead to local suppliers and developers tapping into the millions the feds are spending to standardize its websites and make them more accessible. Hosted by software developer and services company Thinknostic, the workshop will feature presentations on CLF 2.0 by the Treasury Board Secretariat Common Look and Feel Office and Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. Then the floor will be open for questions. “It is of interest to startups because the Treasury Board will be discussing a huge list of potential business opportunities that have been created because of this standard,” says Thinknostic’s Darren de Jean. “There are massive voids on the technology and services side for validation tools, conversion and transformers, etc., and this is a great foot in the door for local startups that may have solutions or can re-vector existing technologies to solve these problems.” While developers will be shown a the way in, tech vendors will also find guidance, as they learn how CLF 2.0 affects their products and services and what it takes to provide compliant solutions to government departments. Free of charge and requiring no registration, the workshop will be held at 14:00 in the Westin Hotel’s British Columbia Room.
