South Australia Unleashed Success

The South Australia (SA) Unleashed 2015 competition was an even bigger success this year with over 200 participants competing in 4 locations; Adelaide, Mt Gambier, the City of Onkaparinga and the City of Playford.  Approximately 40 teams competed in SA Unleashed and 50 youths competed in the inaugural N3xGen open data competition.

Over 735 datasets were available to competitors from Data.SA, 192 of those were released in June for the competition. The best state government contribution to Unleashed was the Department of the Premier and Cabinet who went from 18 datasets to 139.  The best local council contribution was the Port Adelaide Enfield Council for actively engaging with  participants through the events.

The event wouldn’t have been possible without our sponsors and our dedicated Unleashed crew who worked tirelessly to prepare the event and provide support over the competition weekend. A big thank you to our data publishers and data mentors who provided specialist advice to the competitors on the data.
