Hackfest 2015 to make us a smarter region
Here’s a great chance to be part of the Sunshine Coast’s Smart City and help our region become one of the most innovative and modern in the world.
Sunshine Coast Hackfest 2015 will bring together coders, digital creatives, data analysts, story tellers, entrepreneurs and the community over three days next month to create apps, visualisations, websites and tools from government data sets.
And our country’s smartest digital minds will not only be helping the Coast become an even better place to live, they’ll be vying for some great prizes.
Hackfest 2015 will run from November 20 to 22 with a base at Spark Bureau at Ocean Street in Maroochydore for those who want to hack in company with others, or find some like-minded hackers to make up a team.
Using the theme “Hacking for a Smarter Region”, hackers will have access to open data information available from the council and State of Federal governments to create a solution for an identified issue or problem on the Sunshine Coast – either now or into the future.
