Free, open course for news-interested "hackers"

Mozilla, Hacks/Hackers, Medill School at Northwestern University, and The Media Consortium are collaborating to run a free online course for journalists and programmers on the Peer-to-peer University platform. This is an experimental six-week course exploring the ways that technology is changing news production and how professional journalists & programmers can work together to innovate around these changes. Here's the tentative course outline:

  • The fundamentals of journalism and coding
  • Project management
  • Edit it. Fork it. The art of collaboration and journalism
  • Big Ugly Datasets For Thumb-Fingered Journalists
  • Maps. Maps. Everywhere
  • Data journalism and government

You can read more here: http://p2pu.org/general/open-journalism-open-web

We are specifically looking for a few more programmers with an interest in learning more about journalism to join the course, as we're heavy on "hacks" and light on "hackers" at the moment. If you're interested, contact me directly here: http://p2pu.org/users/phillipadsmith and let me know a bit about yourself, your experience, what you might contribute to the course, and what time zone you're in.

Looking for Drupal training in London/SE England especially for building a newspaper site and/or conditional presentation of content depending on which page your on

I'm seriously considering investing in myself by buying some training, taking a few days off my job and going on a course for such things. I've done a bit of google searching but I thought I'd ask here for recommendations, durations, price guides/ranges.

I didn't get a chance to meet others at Lucky's yesterday (raucous fun, but not too conducive to conversation!). Come on by if you're interested in Knight or just want to chat over Drupal.
