Join the Center for Cooperative Media and Hack Jersey for our 2015 hackathon, a weekend of making journalism better through data, code and play! We're bringing together coders and journalists to create innovative news apps and data journalism. Whether this is your first hackathon or you're a seasoned pro, we'll join forces to tell stories about New Jersey using publicly-available data, Web-based tools and elbow grease.
Participants are required to fill out this short application form in order to give us a better idea of your particular skillsets, as well as your availability and other general information. This will make the team selection process much easier and more effective on our end.
You are not officially registered unless you have filled out this survey.
