Round up from GovHack 2014

GovHack is over for 2014, with teams finishing their hacks by 5:30pm on Sunday, 13 July.

With over 1,200 participants organised into 178 teams, 204 projects were developed in under two days, with 146 projects (based on my count) eligible for the approximately $70,000 in national prizes.

Note: GovHack has informed me they are still adding videos for teams with network issues, so the numbers in this post and my spreadsheet will underreport. I’ll update it once final numbers are confirmed.

National prizes will be awarded in a red carpet event in Brisbane on 10 August. I’ll be attending courtesy of GovHack, to live tweet and blog the event.

All the projects are visible at the GovHack website, linking to project pages. There’s links to home pages and videos for projects eligible for the national awards.

I’ve analysed all of the GovHack projects and teams based on GovHack’s site and you can view this analysis at:

Here’s a few quick charts from my GovHack stats (mouseover for details):

Finally, below is the finishing video for GovHack 2014.

I hope I see you at the GovHack Red Carpet Awards!
