Hack Devon County Council

As a Council we are at the beginning of our Open Data Journey.

We have used and reused others peoples open data, we have experimented with a hack weekend supported by students from Plymouth University we have set up an Open Data forum on 27th February and now we are taking the next step and taking part in Rewired State’s Hack the Government.

It is happening on the 8-9th March and for more information about the event and the challenges check out the Hack the Government Exeter page

  1. This is a good idea. There have been a number of councils hacked over the past 12 months, so this kind of initiative is to be welcomed – forewarned is forearmed and all that.

    I was REALLY concerned to see the response to this FOI request: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/psn_compliance_11 It suggests a horrifying level of complacency about unknown open source components in what sounds like a really sensitive system.

    Good luck with the hackathon, hope it generates some useful learning.
