Sakai-Jasig plenary talk on the changing role of the developer in HE
I have just given an invited plenary talk at the joint Sakai/Jasig Conference in Atlanta, on The Changing Role of the Developer in HE. Introducing the notion of the connected developer, and describing how the DevCSI project has supported the growth of a community of ‘connected developers’ in HE in the UK, I went on to describe the need for a new role – the Strategic Developer – one which can provide a developer perspective to institutional strategic decision-making.
The talk appears to have generated considerable interest in the Sakai and Jasig communities, with an invitation to DevCSI to collaborate more formally.
Slides for this talk are available on Slideshare.
