Improving the lives of Australians

Join us in Sydney & Melbourne for the 1st cross industry hackathon in Australia - Aug 11-13th.

We're looking for ways to improve the lives of Australians with transactional data. Join us for an incredible data sharing hackathon between 11th and 13th August 2017 in two locations: Stone & Chalk in Sydney and Cognizant’s Collaboratory in Melbourne. The winning team in each city will receive $5,000 and there are a range of other prizes to reward creative ideas!

Developers won't have access to real customer data, but to the sandbox of Open Bank Project APIs, to simulate access to transactional data, banking services and other sets of data. The sandbox will provide developers access to view existing transactions, branches and ATMs.
