Election season is the Super Bowl for news-application teams. Whether it's capturing live data streams on election night, creating innovative new approaches to mapping, building large-scale crowdsourcing infrastructure to fact check or data-dive, capturing real-time social sentiment, or simply creating new user experiences for presenting election results, developers inside the newsroom (and passionate indies) repeatedly pushed the envelope in the months leading up to the US Presidential elections.
Just five days after election day, join seasoned newsroom developers, journalists, fact checkers and citizen reporters to compare notes, lessons learned, and develop new code and concepts arising from the just finished 2012 US elections.
Come help document the amazing work done this election cycle, and start to design and hack new tools for covering, documenting, and reporting elections the world over.
Who should come?
