NewsHack Day SF
We’re bringing together journalists, developers and designers for some creative news coding and data reporting. Hackers and designers will work with reporters to come up with the future of journalism. Please join the waitlist as we will be accepting people off the list. We have three events: Code Camp (Fri only) NewsHack Social (Fri night) and NewsHack Day SF (Sat + Sun). It's requested, but not required, that you attend NewsHack Day if you join Code Camp. Anyone can come to the NewsHack Social to support the cause. After you get your ticket, be sure to register as a participant here: NewsHack participant form. Are you a journalist or media company with a Dream Project you want the community to hack? Post it here on our project form!
June 22-24. See our full schedule at the website.
"Liberate the data” code camp (laptop required!) Friday, June 22
Thomas Levine of ScraperWiki will host a code bootcamp covering webscraping, building python scrapers and using scraped data. The first hour is a high-level overview open to anyone (journalists especially). The rest of the day (10:15 AM - 5:45 PM) will be dedicated to Learn to Scrape and then a Liberate the Data session to apply what you've learned. You need basic coding skills, and this is a hands on session so please bring your labtop! Lunch is free.
NewsHack Social Friday night, June 22
We're inviting attendees of NewsHack Day and code camp (and guests) who would like to join the festivities to support NewsHack Day.

Drink, dance, then code tomorrow. 6:15 PM - 11 PM at the Hub SoMA.
NewsHack Day Sat + Sun, June 23-24
NewsHack Day brings together journalists, developers and designers for two days of creative news coding and data reporting. You don't have to be an expert coder or seasoned editor: just bring your skills and enthusiasm to figure out the future of news. We're focused on creating story hacks (digging up data-driven stories) and news tools (ways to make reporting, producing and publishing better). Prizes will be awarded. We start Saturday morning, and end 0n Sunday afternoon. You are free to sleepover at the Hub on Saturday night. More details will be sent once you register.
