OpenNews connects a network of developers, designers, journalists, and editors to collaborate on open technologies and processes within journalism.
Looking Ahead to SRCCON
This August our annual conference SRCCON returns to Minneapolis for two amazing days building better newsroom code, culture, and process—together. We're looking forward to more than fifty collaborative sessions covering hiring, business models, data, and more. Learn more about how we build SRCCON.
What We Believe
We believe a diverse community of peers working, learning, and solving problems together can create the stronger, more representative ecosystem that journalism needs to thrive. Through events for newsroom coders and journalists and a wide range of community and project support programs, we enable collaboration across organizations. Learn more about what we do or find out how you can get involved.
