As part of my time abroad in New Zealand, I participated in GovHackNZ 2017. I formed a team with three other individuals at the event, where we worked on data journalism project using a number of datasets, including the New Zealand Census (Stats NZ), electricity pricing history, and other datasets provided by the Dunedin City Council.
Our submission was awarded two cash prizes, totalling NZ$1500 - the Open Government prize and the Dunedin City Council prize. You can read our submission "South of 45" on the hackerspace, or watch the video pitch that we submitted below.
For GovHack 2016, our team, //no comment built a social network, entitled "Tagger". Tagger allowed individuals to tag (its namesake) messages at points of interest described by the NSW POI database.
