Pubcamp West is this weekend! Update and more info
If you’re planning on attending, please RSVP as soon as possible to ensure we have space for them at the event.
Help us decide on topics!
While #pubcamps are always unconferences (meaning loosely styled, no agenda), we know many of you are coming from far and wide. So help us decide what we should talk about. Vote on ideas and submit your own. We’ll announce the sessions when we get started Saturday. VOTE HERE.
As part of the first #pubcampwest, we will be holding a developer-driven hackathon to help engage journalists, producers and developers to create better public journalism in a slightly more structured, but equally open and creative atmosphere.
The focus: building a better future for online audio.
Whether curating and presenting archives of public agency meetings, creating new ways of referencing or using online audio in stories, or thinking of ways to allow the public to access and/or augment online audio, we’re seeking ideas for projects that can goad us to think of how we can better present audio to the online world.
Ideas? Skills? Let’s plot them HERE.
The hackathon will happen in conjunction with the rest of the unconference, but with a slightly different schedule: Introductions and rapid-fire presentations of potential projects August 20, after which we’ll review and vote on the best. We’ll start hacking Sunday morning through 5pm, when we’ll wrap things up with 10-minute project presentations.
We’re looking for a head-count on interested parties for the hackathon. Please email Eric Zassenhaus <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> and let us know if you’d like to be part!
