News Hack Arizona 2018 is April 28-29, 2018 on the University of Arizona campus. This year we are proud to announce our partnership with Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting's TechRaking. You will get to pick the brains of some of the best data journalists in the country. Come join us and add the tools of data journalism to your skill-sets, using real world examples in a hands-on learning environment. Open up new avenues to your reporting! News Hack Arizona is a collaboration between the Arizona Daily Star and University of Arizona School of Journalism.


Many professional journalists and students do not have the money to attend national training sessions. Our group of professional and academic journalists will provide a low-cost hackathon focusing to bring national-level training on data journalism to Arizona Journalists.

One of the ways we will keep costs low is by providing a network of homes for journalists to stay in while attending News Hack Arizona. Contact us if you would like help finding a host for the weekend.


News Hack Arizona will take place on April 28-29 at the University of Arizona Science and Engineering Library. Check out the full event schedule.


Investigative journalists from Reveal and The Center for Investigative Reporting will lead a session on data journalism.
