Friday 29th, Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July
GovHack is about getting our best and brightest around the country working with government data to innovate and create. It’s about encouraging and celebrating our technical and creative capacity, connecting citizens with government for great outcomes, and building on the social and economic value of open data published by government.
The event requires small teams of competitors to produce any kind of “hack” using government data in 46 hours, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. The format of a “hack” is unspecified, but the most common are web applications, mobile applications, or visualisations.
