OpenAustralia Hackfest – MashupAustralia Edition

The OpenAustralia Foundation and Google invite you to this free all-weekend hacking extravaganza for anyone interested in creating a mashup for the MashupAustralia competition or hacking on the OpenAustralia website.

Build a cool application using data from, enter it into the MashupAustralia competition and and you’re in with a chance to win prizes, including a $10,000 first prize. There’s also no better way to show the value of opening up government data then creating a practical demonstration!

We were thinking of calling the event, somewhat irreverently “iHack 2.0 – concentrated data extracts” or “Hacked Open” but in the end thought that might be a tad confusing. So, it’s simply the “OpenAustralia Hackfest – The MashupAustralia Edition”.

See our hackfest site more information and to register. Please retweet our Twitter announcement and don’t forget to tag your tweets, posts and photos with the OpenAustralia Hackfest tag #oahack.
