Two weeks. Three fabulous events.

gov2qld logoIt’s been a big year for the Government 2.0 in Queensland Community of Practice (or gov2qld as we prefer to call it!).

And we’re not done yet!

It’s so exciting to see our community involved in three big events in Brisbane over the next two weeks. Whatever your particular interest area under the “Government 2.0” banner, there is something for you.


Kicking off this coming Saturday (26th November) with Hackfest Brisbane – a one day hackathon based on recently released data sets from Brisbane City Council.

HackFest Brisbane is timed to coincide with the launch of the hack::Brisbane competition that challenges software developers to help improve Brisbane with creative new apps or websites that use Brisbane City Council data.

On Thursday 8th December, we get together for our final group event of the year to “Celebrate the Success of Government 2.0” in our state.

We have some fabulous speakers including Simon Finn MP and it will be a great time to network with peers from other agencies and authorities.

Thanks all for a fabulous year for our Community of Practice. Look forward to seeing you at one, or all of these special events.
