Puerto Rico Tech Summit 2013

Calling all "amantes del Internet libre," the Puerto Rico Government is sponsoring the first ever technology summit focused on raising the consciousness and use of government enabled Application Programming Interfaces (API).  This is an unprecedented vote of confidence in the local software development community, which makes me super excited.

The Puerto Rico Tech Summit, is scheduled for June 6, 2013 in the Puerto Rico Convention Center. In conjunction with a program of workshops and tutorials, the summit will also feature the first ever Government Hackathon.

All of this follows the recent announcement of the Governor's MOU asking for Rest API's from all of the major government agencies, Governor Garcia Padilla has signaled a new era in software development in Puerto Rico.  Led by Giancarlos González and Roberto Rosario, this new initiative breaths fresh air into an IT industry that is stagnated and smothered by monopolistic software industry practices.

Esta iniciativa de pedir REST API's a las agencias de gobierno es probablemente la primera movida real para tratar de mejorar la infraestructura en mucho tiempo. Me pregunto, ¿cual es la expectativa real de que las agencias se van a movilizar para cumplir y cual es el esfuerzo técnico que requiere?
