Hacks/Hackers Atlanta Message Board › Data Viz NewsCamp, 2/24 in Raleigh, N.C. co-sponsored by Hacks/Hackers
Hello fellow Hacks and Hackers! Here's an great event that many of you will find of interest not too far away (we've got to be the Hacks/Hackers chapter that's closest to Raleigh, N.C., right?) Info below:
From intricate interactive maps to stunning visualizations, news organizations like The New York Times and Washington Post make data come alive for readers. Join Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), in partnership with Hacks/Hackers, for NewsCamp on Feb. 24 in Raleigh, N.C., and you too can learn from the best in the business — whether you're a rank beginner, or experienced designer/developer.
This daylong workshop will tackle subjects ranging from storytelling without words to best practices and emerging technologies. But it's more than talk: You'll spend the afternoon in small hands-on sessions learning how to put these theories into practice.
Registration for the daylong event is limited and costs only $100. Deadline to register at that price is Feb. 14, but space is limited.
NewsCamp is being held in conjunction with IRE’s Computer-Assisted Reporting Conference,Feb. 24-27, and you can attend NewsCamp and the CAR Conference for a total of $195 (until noon Central Time, Feb. 14).
Registration will be available after the deadline, but at a higher rate.
