Please join Hacks/Hackers ATX and the Online News Association Austin Local for Innovation at Texas Tribune. Rodney Gibbs, the Chief Innovation Officer, will discuss some of their innovative apps, including the new Public Schools Explorer. Noah Seger, the developer behind the Explorer project, will also join Rodney. It'll be a great opportunity to learn about what goes on behind the scenes at Texas Tribune and to find out how they integrate technology with engaging content. Perhaps Rodney can share some of their plans for the future, too.
Appropriately, we'll be at the Texas Tribune this time (823 Congress Ave, 2nd floor - around the corner from the museum), starting at 6:30pm. We're cross-posting on both Hacks/Hackers ATX and the ONA meetup group, so feel free to RSVP on either meetup group.
Refreshments for this meeting will be sponsored by Lewis Knight of the Paintbrush Ranch in Wimberley. Lewis is also a TXST alum and a current Ph.D. student at UT. Thanks Lewis!
Please arrive before 7pm, as the guard won't be available after that to let people in. Hope to see you on Mon., Aug 6 at 6:30pm for this event.
