David Tallan led the OPSpedia team. As Senior Manager of Enterprise Web Development for the Ontario government, David Tallan is responsible for web modernization, for the website and for providing standards and guidance to the Ontario Public Service web community. An important part of that is guidance on how best to leverage emerging web technologies. David has been providing access to government information and services over the Internet since 1993.

Now, he’s providing advice to government leaders on how best to use the latest emerging web technologies – and putting that advice into practice.
