Hey everyone, please welcome the newest branch of the Hacks/Hackers family: Seoul just opened a chapter in conjunction with Data Journalism Korea.

They had their first event on Friday and are taking new members on their Meetup group.

Worth a read:

  • Slack, a communication app that many newsrooms and tech teams have relied on for the past few years, just became a publicly traded company (Nieman Lab)
  • The New York Times created a publicly available data boot camp to teach its reporters some data journalism basics like navigating spreadsheets, analyzing data and translating the findings into impactful stories (The New York Times)
  • Jeremie Harris, the co-founder of a startup geared at mentoring data scientists, compiled a checklist of necessary skills data scientists need to know to be able to land jobs, which comes in handy for data journalists too (Towards Data Science)
