We’re having a hackathon in the service of journalism: bringing coders, civic hackers and journalists together to tell stories with data and build tools for newsgathering, storytelling and civic engagement.

The event starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday March 28. We break at 7 p.m. on Saturday night for a party, return to hack at 9 a.m. Presentations and prize ceremony will start at 2 p.m. and are open to the public. We’ll feed you too!
