Cooperation is everything

Come to us. If you are a developer -come to us April 4-5, 2019. Infomaker arranges a hackathon where developers can share experiences with investigative journalists and media actors. You can have your own idea you want to develop or get inspiration from an investigative idea on something you think should be tested to be developed.

Grävseminariet 2019. If you are a journalist - and carry an idea of ​​a fair application for investigative journalism. Share your idea with us right now by sending an email, and we can help to see if it would be possible to bring it to the hackathon-developers.

Infomaker Hackathon Gräv 2019. We really like the opportunity to meet and inspire each other, see code get created and give the opportunity to focus and concentration. We have arranged many hackathons and previously, fantastic solutions for publishers have seen the light of day at these events. Do you remember a local hack?

Good to know

Place. We start at the Gotamedia House on Thursday and continue at the Investigative seminar Grävseminariet in Kalmarsalen on Friday.
