The National Hack The Government Day Hack invites you to join us to build software, visualizations and other creations that puts the government’s meticulously-compiled facts and figures to good use. You will have free reign over the data, able to build and showcase what is important to you and what you think is important to others.
It's an exiting opportunity for developers, designers and tech heads to visualize data in new and interesting ways, or build frameworks that make it easier for future software to tap into it. Finding ways to improve your Government by coding a better country. Creating prototypes of tools, services, applications or even websites all fuelled by coffee, pizza and sweets.
