PROJECTS

Hacks/Hackers LDN is proud to be growing and developing offerings to our community. In addition to the monthly meetup, we also love to work on other projects - whether collaborating with other organisations or individuals or just out on our own. Here are some of the exciting things we’ve brought to our members over the last year…

Liberating Structures

In January 2019 we kicked off the year with something a bit different. Our usual meetup format was replaced with a workshop from Liberating Structures. With a focus on collaboration and networking, everyone was up on their feet and getting involved.
 

It was a great success. You can see more details on their website and photos of the session here. 

Keep an eye out for more workshops coming soon.

My So-Called Career 

 

Hacks/Hackers LDN were delighted to collaborate with My So-Called Career on a ten-week career programme for women in journalism.

 

Members of Hacks/Hackers LDN were given the opportunity to sign up to the programme at a significantly reduced rate.

Parental Leave workshop

In September 2019 we ran a workshop for parents of babies and young children and parents to be in journalism and tech facilitated by return-to-work expert, Jessica Chivers.

 

To make sure that parents of babies and young children could attend, childcare was provided onsite for everyone who needs it. It was a resounding success and we hope to develop more projects of this kind next year

Count - data hackathon

Hacks/Hackers LDN partnered with Count for a data hackathon in October. 

Count is a data publishing platform changing how we interact with data online.

This special Hacks/Hackers LDN meetup, focussed entirely on the intersection of journalism and artificial intelligence (AI).
