Ben Forta on Open Government Dashboards
On January 28th, Ben Forta from Adobe spent an hour with an online audience discussing various ways to approach the design, development and deployment of highly interactive dashboards. Here are his slides. To illustrate his points, Ben focused on Adobe Cold Fusion as the development and delivery platform, highlighting the speed and efficiency of a Cold Fusion focused development project. To bring his comments to life, Ben demonstrated an Open Government application created by Figleaf Software. Through the generosity of Figleaf, they have made the example application available in it’s entirety for anyone to download and use, free of charge. A few simple modifications, and your agency can bring up a branded version of this site. The source files can be found here and the setup files here.
