Thanks so much to our sponsors!

Original welcome

Welcome to Hack Miramar (Sat 1st / Sun 2nd November)
Hack Miramar is Wellington's first civic hacking event and hopefully one of many to come. It's an open invitation to innovators, designers, architects, developers and those who are just interested in coming up with new ideas and want to get involved.

A group of like-minded individuals an sponsors are coming together on the 1st and 2nd of November this year to participate in Wellington’s first Civic Hackathon. While this has been branded a “Miramar” Hackathon it is open to everyone within the Wellington region.

What is a "hackathon"

A hackathon is an intensive session where a group of people are giving a civic problem, data, tools, and bring their own skills & resources to solve that problem. Hackathon comes from merging “hack” and “marathon” [see also Wikipedia: Hackathon]

The Challenge

One of Wellington City’s greatest challenges and contentious issues is that of traffic management and flow. Traffic being pedestrians, cyclists, public transport, taxis, freight, and private vehicles. Therefore the challenge is: How do we increase the quality of transport around the Eastern Suburbs Peninsula and to and from the Central Business District?”
