Hacks/Hackers Lagos’ first meeting is now confirmed for Saturday June 29at 11am!

It’s time to kick-start Open Data and Data journalism and we’ll be doing just that at the Co-Creative Hub in Sabo, Yaba.

This event is open to all members of the public interested in data and willing to start the journey of making something out of it. You do not necessarily have to be a coder, a journalist, media creative or civil society worker to attend! Just come with a passion for Transparency and be ready to rub minds and work for Democracy.

Here’s how it goes:

  1. Hacks/Hackers meet at Co-Creation Hub!
  2. We provide the data, training where needed and throw some light refreshments into the mix!
  3. You interact, share thoughts and action plans on the data for the good of our democracy!

 Specifically:

* Journalists at the first Hack-Hackers Lagos meet will get a private tour of the new BudgIT website to help make scraping data FASTER!

* Journalists may bring their own data, liaise with creative and developers to get out stories and be on the way to a scoop!

* Creatives, designers and developers as well can bring their own data or ask for some! Rubbing minds you can come up with search apps or infographics!

*Mobile App developer Emeka Okoye has promised a special tutorial for journalists and data scientists…find out when you attend!
