Hacks/Hackers meets OKFestival

Hacks/Hackers Helsinki meets Open Knowledge Festival!

OKFestival (http://okfestival.org) is the biggest open data event in the World, and it will take over Helsinki for a week in September. For those of us interested in the union of data and journalism, there is lots to experience at #OKF. The data journalism and visualization track of the programme is happening on Tuesday, but we'll organise a kick-off in the form of a Hacks/Hackers gathering on Monday evening.

NOTE: This event will be in English.



Jens Finnäs: Journalist looking for a coder friend
"I am a journalist that likes playing around with data. But sometimes I am not able to do the things that I want. This is what I will talk about - the projects that I want to do, but can't. I am a journalist looking for coder friends."

Jens is a data journalist living in Sweden. He blogs at http://dataist.wordpress.com/
