For the first time ever, the City of Casey hosted a GovHack event to allow computer savvy types from far and wide an opportunity to design innovative digital solutions.
The event ran for 46 hours over the weekend starting on Friday, 28 July where teams identified problems, built working prototypes and published their source as an open code.
Entrepreneurs, IT specialists and anyone with a general interest in data were encouraged to participate in the event, which took place across Australia and New Zealand.
Projects included web, mobile or augmented reality applications, new analysis or 3D printed visualisations to understand data and patterns.
GovHack has inspired governments across Australia to improve how they deliver their data, to make it easier for the public to understand how governments use revenues, and to focus more attention on delivering citizen-centric services.
