Today we hosted one of several hackdays happening nationwide, organised by The Bureau Local. Journalists from The Bristol Cable joined up with students from the MSc in Computational and Data Journalism to analyse election data, hoping to uncover local data stories around the voters in their local constituencies.
We’re pleased to be able to support one of the first community initiatives from The Bureau Local, which along with their project examining dark advertising on Facebook is beginning to show how they will deliver on their mission to build a “network of journalists and tech experts across the country who will work together to find and tell stories that matter to local communities”.
Here's our team in Cardiff about to get stuck into some juicy datasets. We have teams in London, Bournemouth, Glasgow and Birmingham too pic.twitter.com/FFG6JMzurE
