July 5, 2016 6:30PM: GovHack 2016 Meeting

Hi Everyone,

GovHack is back on July 29 to 31 (Friday evening to Sunday evening). More info can be found here: https://www.govhack.org/

In the past people from MHV have entered and won awards! GovHack 2014 Winners

Would anyone be interested in being involved with a MHV team?

We would need people with programming/coding/web/data/design/video and other skills.

(My personal skills are in spatial data and a little experience with coding.)

Sounds interesting. Happy to join in if the team needs additional coding skills.


I’d be happy to tag along also!

We should spend a Tuesday meet (or other night if you prefer) practicing to get something dumb/simple up and running prior to the event - some practice working as a team, and sort out what tools of the trade we’ll be wielding before we get there :slight_smile:

I do python/perl/js linuxy things. I’ve written D3.js & AngularJS apps in the past but I’m a bit rusty (most of my last 12months has been backend stuff).

Graphic designers are rarely impressed with my design skills (ie. they jump out of the nearest window).


That’s a great idea Paul. I was feeling rather nervous about the potential of us just winging it!

And Foo, it would be great to have you on the team.

I am so glad there are people at MHV who have awesome skills :smiley:

Count me in too

I has coding (Python, php, Perl, c#) and background with MySQL and

Also can 3d, kind of design electronics and maybe if all works out
fabricate PCBs

Anyone remember how we did the Travis CI?

Hello interested GovHackers!

You can now sign up to participate here: http://portal.govhack.org/locations/act/canberra.html

We need to sign up individually, which also means that you can specify dietary requirements :slight_smile:

We can have a chat next Tuesday night (Tuesday 5 July) about how we might go about all of this. For those who can’t make it, I will take notes.
