B7: What's the Point of Having Developers in a Web 2.0 World?

A session at IWMW 2008 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Wednesday 23rd July, 2008

3:30pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

With the ever-increasing quality of third-party tools lowering the barriers for enthusiasts to provide Web-based services for their teams and departments, what's the point in having an insitutional Web development team? Can they provide anything that someone with the time, motivation and a decent tool can't? Should Web Services just be innovating on top of these services (and if so, how?), or should they be disbanded in favour of outsourcing?

A short introductory presentation will be followed by a roundtable discussion with sweets on offer to keep our energy up!
