July #teacamp: Terence Eden on why Open Standards are amazing and how they can help transform government

Terence joined the Civil Service in 2016 after 15 years working for various startups and mobile phone companies.

As the Open Standards Lead for the Government Digital Service (GDS) it’s his team’s job to help the government select open standards and see them implemented everywhere.

He’ll tell us why Open Standards are amazing and how they can help transform government; making it more open while saving time, money, and lives.

Terence is part of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Advisory Committee, helping to set future standards for the web. He recently got four and half new Emoji into Unicode.
