ANDS, CSIRO, NeCTAR, TERN, ALA, AURIN, RDS, IMOS, AuScope and The University of Melbourne have joined forces to put on a weekend Hackfest in Melbourne.
Over the weekend your team will mash, app, API, analyse or visualise NCRIS and/or CSIRO datasets – with prizes for the best ideas and innovative applications (first prize $2,000). You can organise your team beforehand or come along and find a team at the event.
The Melbourne Science Hackfest aims to: foster connections/interactions between data consumers and data providers; promote data synthesis activities across different domains; encourage the development of innovative data products or knowledge systems that may be useful to the wider public; demonstrate the innovative value of CSIRO and NCRIS data; and further Australia’s ability to respond to our grand challenges, especially using data of national significance.
