Hacks/Hackers is an international organization that brings together journalists (hacks) and technologists (hackers) for information sharing and a better understanding of what each other does. Anyone in the communication or programming fields (professionals, students and faculty) is invited to attend. In a digital news and information era, it becomes increasingly important for both groups to learn to speak the same language. Hacks/Hackers ATX will sponsor social and professional events to help bridge the gap and encourage collaborations.
The Austin chapter is the 7th internationally, after San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, London, Boston and Chicago. We feel our fair city offers a great combination of communicators and technologists that will result in some amazing projects and opportunities.
Hacks/Hackers ATX is organized by Cindy Royal, an assistant professor at Texas State University - San Marcos, Matt Stiles and Niran Babalola of Texas Tribune, Christian McDonald of the Austin American-Statesman and Jon Lebkowsky, Web consultant and strategist. We plan to have monthly meetings, so let us know your ideas for future events.
