We've moved this month's social meetup forward to Thursday July 14 to coincide with Christmas in July celebrations in Marine Terrace Mall. Come join the vibrant and cosy winter vibe in the street and shops near Pollinators before and after our members' meetup. This meetup we will learn about what's in store for GovHack's 'Hackathon' from July 29 to 31.
As part of GovHack, teams have 46 hours to create a project page, proof of concept and a video that tells the story of how government data can be reused. All sorts of people join GovHack, including entrepreneurs, developers, data analysts, engineers, designers, digital media creators, artists, film makers, story tellers, academics, researchers, youth and civic enthusiasts.
Previous years entries have included, art, jewellery, a digital sign, a board game, historic film pieces, a virtual reality game, a 3d model, a visualisation of data, an informed article and of course some amazing web apps!
Come and find out what's planned locally. It promises to be an awesome meeting of minds.
