Learn to Build Mobile News Alerts Without an App

Register via Eventbrite (through end of day Jan. 27) at this link:

Do not register on Meetup.

Do you want to send news alerts, but don’t have an app? Join Hacks/Hackers NYC on Saturday, Jan. 28, to learn in just one day how to quickly build a web application that can send notifications to Chrome mobile web users (sorry, no Safari compatibility yet!). The Guardian Mobile Innovation Lab and Google will walk you through creating a web notifications system and you’ll learn to push some notifications on your own.

The workshop will be led by Alastair Coote, Connor Jennings and Bret McGowen. Alastair and Connor are developers for the Guardian Mobile Innovation Lab, and have launched many web notification projects for the mobile lab over the last year, for news events ranging from the Olympics to the US presidential primaries. Bret McGowen is a developer advocate at Google, focusing on Firebase implementation.

You’ll get the most from this workshop if you are a news developer interested in using notifications to deliver content to a wider audience, are already working with web technologies and have some experience with mobile. Journalists, designers, UX designers new to code are also welcome, and will be paired with developers to collaborate on any day-of developments, hacks, etc.

Registration is $25, payable in advance on Eventbrite.
