Running for the third time in Brisbane and Melbourne for Aaron Swartz Day, on the weekend 9th-11th November 2018.
The theme this time is “defending encryption” (against the government’s attack on encryption). Any project that fits under the broad umbrella of internet freedom, including anything that aligns closely with Aaron Swartz’s work on transparency and accountability, is welcome.
Our mission is to grow the digital rights movement, and contribute positively and effectively to advancing internet freedom.
By attending you’ll get a chance to:
- work with a small team on a meaningful problem
- be recognised by the civil society community
We need developers, experience designers, visual designers, quality analysts, business analysts, puzzle solvers, ideas people, managers, and anyone else with an interest in collaborative development, or the causes of privacy, digital rights, transparency, or accountability.
We’ll form teams – you don’t need to be an expert in any field.
