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 Launceston 2016 will be held in the Battery Shed in Launceston, near the Queen Victoria Museum in Inveresk. You can find parking nearby at the Launceston City Council carpark outside the Museum (near Blue Cafe).
Find out more about the Launceston event, the venue, prizes, and much more at the Govhack web site.
