HACK THE GOVERNMENT | Rewired States Annual Hack day to Code a better Country

National Hack The Government is an annual HackCamp run by Rewired State. As well as bringing great people together to have a fun hacking and building things, we hope to improve transparency, open data and produce demo-able ideas that can be followed up and put into practice in real life. We do this by holding a competitive event for creating prototypes  and building ingenious (and occasionally tongue-in-cheek ) projects that help improve local and national services and make use of open data.
For our 6th year, we are hosting an even bigger event hosting hyper local communities hacking around local data, issues and problems bringing in the National part in the title to life. We are also adding in a bar-camp on the Saturday to help share information and insight – to organically define some of the challenges that will be hacked on. This explains the title “Hack-Camp”!
The event will be followed up by a finalists show and tell – taking the winners from each centre and allowing them to demo their ideas to government, business and the wider community.
