*Are you a developer, designer or journalist interested in the future of
news? Join us for NewsHack Day and ScraperWiki code
We're bringing together a community for several days of creative news
coding and data reporting. You don't have to be an expert coder or editor:
just bring your skills and enthusiasm to figure out the future of news.
We’re building story hacks (digging up data-driven stories) and news tools
(ways to make reporting, producing and publishing better). We'll have code
camp to turn data into investigative stories on Friday, followed by the
NewsHack social. A 48-hour hackathon at the Hub SoMa happens all weekend.
Free food and cocktails will be provided by Airbnb's executive chef Sam
Lippman and Tim West.

For more information, please go to our signup here:

Facebook. <https://www.facebook.com/NewsHackDaySF?ref=ts> Space is limited.
