When the progressive movement works together, we all get stronger. But today, too few of our technologies talk with each other, inhibiting collaboration and the ability to put together the best suite of technologies to win our campaigns.

The Open Supporter Data Interface is changing that. Nerds from technology vendors, nonprofits, labor unions, and progressive campaigns have come together to design a standard to allow political technologies to talk to each other seamlessly. After introductions and background in lecture format about how this important initiative got going, who’s involved, and how it’s changing the future of political data and integration, we will take the audience through live demos and scenarios showing different systems interacting with each other.

Examples will include:
1) A website supporter signup form that pushes data into multiple well-known CRM systems at the same time
2) A simple offline canvassing application to intake new supporters that can work with multiple well-known CRMs
3) An OSDI based integration between a donation system and a CRM.

Between the lecture, demos, and questions at the end, the audience should get a firm understanding of how their applications and data can interact with each other through the OSDI specification and what that interaction means for the future of organizing technology and networked campaigns.
