Volunteered at GovHack 2023

After competing in GovHack in 2017 I became heavily involved as a volunteer for a few years. After a break and a move to Melbourne I volunteered to help with GovHack in Victoria.

GovHack encourages software projects that make use of open government data. It's a wonderful contest that lets teams come together and do a quick project in one weekend.

I was tasked with taking photos and enjoyed the challenge of photographing groups.

As a volunteer it was a tiring weekend, I'm not used to standing up for long periods and talking to lots of people. Overall, very rewarding and I look forward to the state and national awards ceremonies in the months ahead.
