Florida Web Forum Points State Webbies to Resources

Florida's Web Forum will meet later this month to forge a dialogue between government systems administrators and World Wide Web designers and content developers across state agencies.

According to the group's draft charter (mail.irm.state.fl.us/councils/webforum/web_charter.html), the Florida Web Forum was created as a resource to help state agencies with their Web sites. The group also aims to educate state managers on the use of Web technology to improve government services and reduce costs.

At a forum meeting in late May, representatives from Florida's State Technology Office briefed forum members on a new database of Web development tools. Issues for subsequent meetings were discussed, including training, developing Web interfaces for database applications and what Web developers should know about Internet security.

The Florida Web Forum will meet again June 29.
