The word ‘hackathon’ is no longer a stranger to the techies and public officials of Indonesia, particularly in tech-hubs like Jakarta, Bandung and Yogyakarta. There have been around ten hackathons utilizing public data in Indonesia over the past two years which created significant impact on the nation’s civic-tech timeline.
As another effort towards tech-savvy government, PLJ is hosting a seminar and hackathon with the theme “Empowering Indonesia” that will take place on November 27th-29th at Gajah Mada University and Eastparc Hotel in Yogyakarta. This particular hackathon focuses on three problem statements articulated by the Ministry of National Development Planning (Bappenas) which will be released at the start of the hackathon.
