The “Thingstitute” is Montgomery County’s living laboratory for Internet of Things (IoT) technology, providing a test‐bed for start-‐ups, established companies and research institutions. Ultra Montgomery is a high‐speed fiber network that will connect Montgomery County’s business, academic and federal institutions along major corridors and transit-‐oriented smart-‐growth communities.

- Building a 21st Century Government
Building a 21st Century Government
Since 2011, Code for America has worked with 32 local governments through their Fellowship program, using technology and new ways of working to deliver more effective, efficient, and fair government fit for the 21st century. Through these Fellowships, they have identified seven principles that they believe are critical for governments of any size, structure, or political persuasion in serving their communities. Code for America helps local governments learn and apply these principles to important problems. Jen and Luke will facilitate a discussion with County CIOs to get their feedback and to understand the issues/limitations they face in their counties, and in their roles in helping advance how their organizations more effectively use technology.
