Exciting news! GovHack is coming to Perth for the first time in 2013

What is GovHack?

"Governments collect and publish enormous amounts of data, but have limited resources to get it into the hands of their citizens in engaging ways. GovHack is an event to draw together people from government, industry, academia and of course, the general public to mashup, reuse, and remix government data."

Data sets from 2012 included the National Archives, Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO and Geoscience Australia. You can find out more about GovHack Perth here or register your interest.
