I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up on the following two events.
== ScraperWiki Data Journalism Camp at the Washington Post, March 30 & 31st ==
Liberate data at this two-day camp where teams will find, scrape, and analyze data to tell stories. (Prizes for the best ones!) There's opportunity for both programmers and non-programmers to dive in. Plus, tutorials will be offered on how to scrape in both Python or Ruby on the first day. If you couldn't make the Hacks/Hackers January workshop or would like to brush up on what you learned, here's your chance. Free.
== Sunlight Foundation's Transparency Camp, April 28 & 29 ==
You may be interested in this big annual unconference about open government in the digital age. Learn about everything from FOI to big data with hundreds journalists, technologists, policymakers, academics and activists from all over the country and the world. Registration is $20 and includes DC-food-truck-catered lunch each day: http://snlg.ht/GAVS2J
