Hack events, or hackathons, are time-constrained events where developers, designers, users and others collaborate to create innovative software solutions from open data sets. State Library hosts challenges and contributes open data sets for relevant hack events in Queensland as part of our open data strategy.
State Library's challenge for GovHack 2019: How might we showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language materials?
State Library's challenge for GovHack 2018: How might we engage Queenslanders with Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation?
Across one weekend, thousands collaborate to develop ideas and solves challenges using open data. See State Library's hosted challenges in every GovHack hackathon.
