Code and journalism have a long and rich history of informing one another, and the web at large. At hack days and workshops, on GitHub and in explanatory articles on Source, this community is sharing its knowledge and strengthening its connection with each other and the broader tech community. We will talk about both the people behind these projects – how and where they connect and why you should join them – as well as discuss some exciting and important open source journalism projects.
