GovHack is all about bringing together coders, artists, storytellers, observers, communicators and more, from the private, public, NGO and academic sectors.
While the group of people is diverse, we’re united in a single purpose – coming together in a weekend-long hackathon and working with government data to innovate and create.
Tools you might want to use during GovHack
There are a range of tools you might want to use for working with your open government data over during GovHack NZ 2016. We encourage you to have at look at these before the weekend, to get a sense of what you can do and how you might like to do it!
Got questions about how the weekend, prizes and awards will work, what you should bring, and what to expect? Check out our website!

We have an ever-growing list of potential data sources for GovHack NZ.
Still want a tshirt/hoodie, but haven’t paid for it?
Local organisers will have a couple of spares at each venue – if you’d like a tshirt/hoodie but haven’t bought one, have a chat with them :)
What is GovHack, anyway? It’s not about “cracking” government – it’s about bringing together the power of open data and all of us to build a better democracy and a more open government and society. Watch this short video to find out more :)
