Join us for the launch of Hacks/Hackers Manchester!
Much has changed since 2009, when the original Hacks/Hackers (http://hackshackers.com/about/) began in San Francisco. The idea of journalists and technologists working together no longer seems so unusual. But it's still only the beginning.
Manchester's thriving digital sector, its many media outlets and three universities (we include our friends in Salford!) mean it is teeming with journalists, designers, technologists, students and academics. Hacks/Hackers MCR aims to bring all these people together, providing a space for collaboration, inspiration and learning.
We've got lots of ideas for all sorts of events in the coming months, but the launch is a chance for us to meet each other and find out what people are already doing.
It's always great to be in there right at the start of something amazing. So bring your laptop if you want to show stuff or just grab a beer and have a chat. Let's build the future of information and media together!
