After years of massive failures in the official system for public schools in Stockholm (Stockholm Stad Skolplattform), a group of developers got together in December 2020 to build an alternative app that presents the same information in ways that make life easier for parents.. The project was named Öppna Skolplattformen and released with huge success on Google Play and App Store in January 2021. The entire project was also made available as open-source on GitHub.
In this session, you will learn about the technologies in the app, why we made the choices we did, and the challenges we faced while building it. You'll hear some amazing facts about the Stockholm Skolplattform and the solutions we needed to build in order to work with and around the system. This is also a great success story about user-driven development and we hope this can serve as a great example for future digitalization of the public sector.
