Hackathon 2017

Ministry of Data's first hackathon saw seriously talented and impressive teams from WA create incredible solutions to the presented problems.

At the hackathon's inauguration, we received engaging speeches from Innovation & ICT Minister Dave Kelly, and Chief Executive & Government CIO Giles Nunis, where they expressed their support and emphasised the enormous potential of the solutions sparked by initiatives like the Ministry of Data Hackathon. And indeed, the ideas, approaches and solutions presented by the teams left our judges and government sponsors in awe and excitement.
