For this month’s Hacks/Hackers Nairobi meetup, our member Code for Africa has invited Aliaume Leroy and Benjamin Strick from *BBC Africa Eye* to take us through the #OSINT tools they use to create their compelling investigative stories.
BBC Eye is a news documentary series offering high-impact investigation and in-depth reporting from across Africa and we’re thrilled to have them join us.
Keen to join us? RSVP here.
About Hack Hackers
Journalists sometimes call themselves “hacks,” a tongue-in-cheek term for someone who can churn out words in any situation. Hackers use the digital equivalent of duct tape to whip out code.
Hacks/Hackers tries to bridge those two worlds. It’s for hackers exploring technologies to filter, visualize and distribute information in a narrative way, and for hacks who use technology to find and tell stories. Hacks/Hackers is a digital community of people who seek to inspire each other, share information (and code) and collaborate to invent the future of media and journalism.
Hacks/Hackers Africa seeks to bring all these people together — so that we can all be more effective in making sense of our world.We aim to help members find inspiration and think in new directions, bringing together potential collaborators for projects and new ventures.
