Our 2022 Events

GovHack Virtual Conference (July/August 2022)

Continuing for 2022, GovHack will again run its international and virtual conference!

This will consist of a series of sessions over a 2-week period, hosting several technical conversations, data owner presentations and messages from our sponsors.

This is a terrific way for hackers to gain a greater understanding and awareness of selected datasets, allowing them to interact directly with data experts.

Region Connections Events
These events held online in each State / Territory, and hosted by the Regional Leads, will be the opportunity for sponsors, mentors and hackers to meet online, prior to the competition. Get to know your fellow hackers and State sponsors and hear the ‘spoilers’ about the challenges.
