What are some changes to expect this year?

  1. Morning Planned Sessions: As a change to the unconference format, we’ll have a couple high-quality, morning pre-lunch events scheduled to motivate you to come early and drive better conversations later.
  2. News Start-athon: Growing on the success of the past two hackathons, this year BCNI will feature a Start-athon, which means the day will used to launch technology, data, tools and other ideas to better inform communities. Do you have a half-thought-out idea? Come and START it at BCNI, and then follow up at other events to move them forward.
  3. Partnerships: We’ll likely be announcing some event partnerships to bring in some new subject matter experts into the news innovation fold.
  4. Shared closing session: We’ll end the sessions at 4pm, so we can collectively see hackathon projects judged and share the biggest takeaways from all the sessions of the day.
