As always, this is a great opportunity to hack on SecureDrop, the whistleblower and news tip submission system, originally created by Aaron and Kevin Poulsen, that is now managed by the Freedom of the Press Foundation and implemented by practically every major news outlet all over the world.
The SecureDrop folks have moved to New York, but will be available for questions while folks hack remotely from all of the hackathons going on around the world this weekend.
Jen Helsby, SecureDrop’s Lead Developer will be presenting "The State of The Drop" at our evening event.

Saturday, November 9 2019 - 11am - 11pm (Hackathon Reception starts at 6:00 pm)
