Heritage Hack is a theme node focusing on the use of cultural heritage data. We’ll be bringing together hackers and content specialists to explore new ways of working with digital collections. What could you make with 200 million newspaper articles, or millions of historical photographs? We’re keen to find out!
GovHack Canberra will be held at the state-of-the-art Snow Centre at Canberra Grammar School. With many rooms for hacking, 80-inch 4K interactive TVs for demonstrating, open break-out spaces for collaborating, a high speed 1Gbps fibre internet link, all hosted within the nation’s capital it should be a super awesome event for all GovHackers!
