GovHack’s vision is a more participatory and effective democracy and public service.
The event gathers New Zealand’s best and brightest 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 and mobile applications.
Events take place in various NZ cities including Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton, Hawke’s Bay and Wellington, Whangarei and Whanganui. (Complete list below)
Registration is open!
