GovHack Aotearoa enables people of all abilities to collaborate and create positive change at home and around the world, whilst raising the profile of Open Government Data.
GovHack is about people from all around the country working with government data to innovate and create.
It’s about empowering and celebrating our technical and creative capacity, connecting citizens with the government for great outcomes, and building on the social and economic value of open data published by the government.
The event forms small teams of competitors to produce any kind of “hack” using government data over the course of one weekend. The format of a “hack” is unspecified, but the most common are web applications, mobile applications, or visualisations.
