Hackdays 2020: develop the journalism of the future

On March 12 and 13, 2020, the SRG is organizing the hackdays for the sixth time, this year under the motto "Journalism of the Future". The hackdays take place simultaneously in Geneva, Lugano and Zurich - the number of places is limited. Be there and register now!

Let us shape the journalism of the future together. We work on solutions for around 30 hours on how media will be used in the future. Whether #data science, #audio, # A.I., #Storytelling, #blockchain, #robotics, #virtual reality, #connectivity, #mobility or # e-sports: Anything goes!

A specific question would be, for example, how newsrooms can use gamification approaches to simplify and improve the processes of content production and distribution - in a playful and rewarding way.

The Hackdays are aimed at SRG employees and external parties who want to creatively develop new digital solutions: from developers and programmers to journalists and designers and creatives. The mix is ​​what matters.
