What is GovHack?
GovHack is the largest open data hackathon in the southern hemisphere. Every year, hackers come together to use open government data and create projects that better our lives and communities. In 2021 it will be held on the weekend of 20th - 22nd August.
In 46 hours teams create a project page, proof of concept, and a video that tells the story of how government data can be reused.
