Innovation day to choose the winning entry

As part of the wider Kent Connects' digital.together programme we have been looking at this year’s Transformed by You event. Following suggestions from Digital Envoys, Kent Connects partners and other stakeholders we have decided to take a different approach that will enable us to work with others in a more cohesive way. We also want to better link with established local hack events and the developer and digital community.

As a result we will be:

  • reviewing the ideas already submitted
  • opening up a dialogue with others
  • looking at opportunities to work more closely with local schools, colleges and Universities
  • engage more fully with the Kent developer community via digital.together

We welcome your ideas and feedback about our new direction.

Finally Transformed by You which was originally planned for 21st November will now be deferred to a later date. So watch this space for more information.

What are the things that you like best about the technology you use, or rather the things that make it easier for you to want to use technology! From aspirations of improved accessibility of “getting a decent signal” to the blunt call for simplicity “simplify phone and text messages and forget all the other things”, […]
