What we're about

The worlds of hackers and journalists are coming together as reporting goes digital and Internet companies become media empires.

Journalists call themselves "hacks," someone who can churn out words in any situation. Hackers use the digital equivalent of duct tape to whip out code. Hacker-journalists try and bridge the two worlds.

This group is to bring all these people together -- those who are working to help people make sense of their world. It's for hackers exploring technologies to filter and visualize information, and for journalists who use technology to find and tell stories. In the age of information overload, all their work has become even more crucial.

This group aims to help members find inspiration and think in new directions, bringing together potential collaborators for projects and new ventures.

Inclusive Dataviz Design

Link visible for attendees

About the event:

In dataviz, we take pride in how we analyze data, and we continually innovate how we visualize our data. But how often do we stop to contemplate if our data truly represents the people behind the numbers? And in a field that relies so much on visuals, how do we provide accessible viz to people dealing with different impairments?

This is not about stuffy rules and gatekeeping. Instead, join us on 6 October 2022, 7pm for a relaxed, fun workshop on the broader idea of inclusive data viz. Discover more about humanizing data and pick up tips and tricks on inclusive design choices for dataviz!

Co-hosted with the Data Vis meetup group
