In order to actualize Jakarta as a smart city, Pemerintah Provinsi DKI Jakarta supported by SEATTI (South East Asia Technology and Transparency Initiative) and MAVC (Making All Your Voices Count) held #HACKJAK2015. It was a series of competition that made use of open data owned by Pemerintah Provinsi DKI Jakarta and partners.
Awrago acted as #HACKJAK2015 organizer, fully managed the event starting with Kick Off (30 June 2015), Road Show (23-31 July 2015), Technical Meeting (2 August 2015), Competition (2-10 August 2015), and Awarding Night (18 August 2015). Our works included event concept, event management, event promotion, sponsors and partners communication, and judges management.
There were three competition categories in #HACKJAK2015: Scrapathon, Visualthon, and Hackathon – each of which has different target participant, competition format, and output. #HACKJAK2015 had nearly 500 participants and produced more than 200 data sets, 30 infographics, and 41 applications.
#HACKJAK2015 successfully generated innovation in technology and design with the use of government data that can improve the quality of public life and help Pemerintah Provinsi DKI Jakarta work more efficiently.
