What is a hack day?

A hack day is when lots of tech-savvy people, such as developers and designers, get together to make use of a recently released dataset. The end result is usually a prototype of an app or software, a solution to prescribed ‘problem’, and/or the conclusion that more data needs to be released.

A more detailed explanation of what a ‘hack day’ is, and links to upcoming events, can be found at the Rewired State webpage here.
