Keynote: The new role of your website
Websites are no longer digital versions of brochures or a collection of pages. As state agencies get ready to migrate to the new digital platform, we demonstrate a decoupled approach to content management. This talk shines a light on how your content needs to be structured, inter-connected, and also decoupled from pages, to make your website dynamic and future-ready for channels that do not exist today.

Planning Beyond the Page
Communicating your organization’s messages effectively can be an overwhelming challenge in the age of mobile browsing, social sharing, and endlessly multiplying “engagement” tools. By moving beyond the “one post, one page” view of your content, you can make better use of your organization’s resources, simplify your own work, and plan more effectively for the future.

Designing smart layouts in the GOVHubUser Interface (UI) Breakout
In the new system, editors have a lot more freedom to lay out content in a way that makes sense for their agency’s goals and their audience’s needs. Of course, that means they’ll also have more freedom to lay it out in a way that doesn’t make sense. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll cover some ground rules and work on a page layout together so you leave knowing how to make your content shine.
