MCB Hack is the conference for you who want to take a deep dive into the possibilities of data journalism.

After a successful conference last year, we are happy to welcome you back in-person to MCB Hack for the second time. 

MCB Hack is specifically aimed at the nerds in the newsroom. The conference concerns the point of intersection between technology and journalism, where visualizing, coding, scraping, and sensory are all relevant keywords. We promise you a program with the industry’s highest nerd factor. Stay tuned for more information and speaker announcements!

NB: You will need a ticket for this conference! Get your ticket for MCB Hack here.
