We’re happy to announce we’re running a Hacks and Hackers Hack Day in Birmingham, sponsored by Birmingham Science Park Aston, Digital Birmingham, the National Union of Journalists and NHS Local. It will take place on Friday July 23, 2010 from 9.30am to 8pm at Birmingham Science Park Aston Faraday Wharf, Holt Street.
The *free* hack day is for both developers and journalists. For further sponsorship opportunities please contact aine [at] scraperwiki.com.
Armed with their laptops and WIFI, journalists and developers will be put into teams of around four to develop their ideas, with the aim of finishing final projects that can be published and shared publicly. Each team will then present their project to the whole group.
As previously announced, we will be running an event in Liverpool on July 16; more on that here.
