Hacks/Hackers at the Frontline Club

Hacks/Hackers is a global movement where hacks (journalists) and hackers (developers) meet for talks, demos, hackathons and socials.

Hacks/Hackers is a global movement where hacks (journalists) and hackers (developers) meet for talks, demos, hackathons and socials. It started in San Francisco and New York in 2009 and there are now 30 meet-up groups across five continents. The goal of Hacks/Hackers is to create a “network of journalists and technologists who rethink the future of news and information”.

All are welcome to attend. We ask that new members join our meet up group here: http://www.meetup.com/HacksHackersLondon/

Speakers for this month’s meet up are still being confirmed. So far we are able to announce:

1) Creating a mobile-first site of ‘topical funny stuff’

Martin Belam, Us Vs Th3m.

Us Vs Th3m launched in May. It’s a site of ‘topical funny stuff’ designed to be read on a mobile phone. The idea for the site came out of a one-day ideas workshop at Trinity Mirror (which publishes the Mirror newspaper) in April. Five weeks later, the site was up and running, with the team of four/five based next to the Mirror’s digital team. Martin Belam will talk about creating the site, and sharing lessons from the first few weeks.

About Martin Belam:
He one of the people behind Us Vs Th3m, a new mobile-first site from Trinity Mirror. He will be well known to Hacks/Hackers regulars. He has been working in digital product development, information architecture and user-experience design, for organisations like the Guardian, Sony, Vodafone and the BBC. He writes about user experience, journalism and digital media at MartinBelam.com.
