Join Hacks/Hackers NYC at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 23 when we take a look at journalism, reporting and display of data on mobile devices.

Speakers include:

Luke Miller, senior UX architect and mobile lead for The Wall Street Journal

Design and implementation process of data products for Dow Jones (WSJ, MarketWatch, SmartMoney, Factiva) begins with a roundtable and ends with rigorous testing. Visual experiences to assist in understanding data is getting a opportunity to reinvent itself with touchinteractions. Luke's talk will be about the process we go through to make data visualization products for Dow Jones users.

• Zach Seward from Quartz, newly launched at qz.com

Zach will talk about how Quartz approaches designing for a wide range of devices and screen sizes, talk through the idea of a "mobile-first infographic," and share examples from other news organizations and websites that Quartz looks to for inspiration.

    I had thought that there would be greater depth in terms of methods for displaying data on devices and data visualization in general. The first speaker from the WSJ clearly had very little experience in front of an audience, and his presentation was terribly designed. A waste of both my time and money.
