On August 3 & 4, SRCCON will return to the McNamara Alumni Center at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, our home for SRCCON in 2015.

What is SRCCON like?

SRCCON is a hands-on conference, full of conversations and workshops focused on the practical challenges that news technology and data teams encounter every day. We work to make it an inclusive and welcoming event where people can feel comfortable digging into complex problems. Last year SRCCON included nearly 300 attendees and more than 50 sessions that covered a wide range of topics, from tech strategies to workplace culture struggles.

Who attends SRCCON

The majority of SRCCON participants are developers, designers, and data analysts who work in newsrooms. We also enthusiastically welcome attendees from closely allied fields like civic tech, mapping, open data, and others who are curious about journalism and excited to share their expertise at a journalism-centric conference.

Our participants represent organizations ranging from massive to tiny, and come from all over the US and many other countries. Each year, we particularly welcome journalists and allies from the city hosting SRCCON, and we’re working to build better remote-participation options for those who can’t attend in person.
