Hacks and hackers to tell digital stories
8 November 2016
The launch event for Hacks/Hackers’ South Wales by South West chapter will take place this Wednesday evening.
The event, which will be co-sponsored by Cardiff University’s MSc in Computational and Data Journalism, will bring together like-minded journalists and programmers with a passion for the future of news.
The worldwide organisation Hacks/Hackers brings together journalists who use technology to find and tell stories and hackers who explore technologies to filter and visualise information.
MSc Computational and Data Journalism co-Director Glyn Mottershead is one of the local organisers. He said, “Hacks/Hackers is all about getting journalists and technologists together to think about the future of news.
“This first meeting in Cardiff is aimed at getting people together to build a network which spans South Wales and the South West and to help play a part in the next generation of news in our region.”
The event is free to attend and will take place at Tramshed Tech, a new co-working space in the centre of Cardiff focused on the Tech and Creative industries, from 19:30-21:30. Further details can be found on Facebook.
