The one and only Jabberwocky

Hello Tassie GovHackers!

If you’re a returning competitor, welcome back! GovHack twenty sixteen sees the return of the official Hobart event, and the Battery Shed as the Launceston venue. Check out the locations here.

If you’ve participated before, you may have recollections of frantically scrambling through web pages looking for dataset links. No more! This year we’ve introduced the ‘Competition Portal‘, a central location where we display event locations alongside their relevant datasets.
