GovHack is a 47 hour hackathon focused on using open data released or hosted by the Government (and related/similar institutions eg Universities).
On Friday the 29th of July you will arrive and receive information about the available data sets. You will then join a team, formulate an idea and spend the next 47 hours taking it from scratches on paper to a functioning masterpiece. At the end you will submit some material to help judging – a few words and a short screencast/video. Prizes are then announced a few weeks later.
The event will end Sunday 31st July at 09:00 PM.
But what if I’m not a hacker/programmer/developer?!
Fiddlesticks. We’re all hackers in some way. And besides, GovHack teams require much more than just technical ability to win. They need people who can do many things other than hacking/programming.
GovHack Hobart 2016 will be held in the Factoryfloor coworking space on the ground floor of the Old Mercury Building on the corner of Argyle and Macquarie Streets. We have a fantastic space with numerous meeting rooms that can be used by teams along with a large communal area.
Find out more about the Hobart event, the venue, prizes, and much more at the Govhack web site.
