With over 1,300 participants across 10 locations, it set a new benchmark for engagement with, and reuse of, government data.
On Sunday evening the winners will be announced at a Red Carpet Awards Night in Brisbane. I'll be attending and liveblogging & tweeting the event, so keep an eye on eGovAU and on the hashtags #govhack, #govhackau and #govhack14.
