The Financial Times hosted its second annual Hack Day on 20th and 21st May 2013, a 24-hour event that offers web developers from inside and outside the FT, and other interested staff, an opportunity to create prototypes for new digital products.
NEW YORK: The Financial Times is proud to support Internet Week New York as an official media partner for the third consecutive year.
The weeklong festival kicked off yesterday with hundreds of web, media and technology focused events and discussions to continue through May 27. This year’s event will explore how technology has disrupted and revolutionized every section of business.
The Financial Times is today launching a new service in Latin America providing top FT news and analysis translated into Spanish. Available through the FT Syndication service, which offers media organisations the right to republish FT content, subscribers will receive 10 articles per week covering international trends and developments relevant to Latin America.
The service will include two articles a day in Spanish from Monday to Friday, available through print or digital channels. Content will include an opinion piece written by a top FT columnist and a news story from the world news, global economy or companies section.
As part of this year’s Financial Times 125 anniversary celebrations, the FT is inviting readers and corporate teams to take part in the Financial Times London Cycle Sportive on 30th June. The event is run by Human Race, the UK’s largest and most diverse mass-participation sports company, in partnership with community sports charity Access Sport.
The ride takes place in the capital and will see several thousand cyclists tackle a new 50km, 100km or 160km cycle route taking in many important landmarks from London’s Olympic history including Box Hill, which was made famous by the likes of Mark Cavendish and Lizzie Armitstead in the 2012 Olympic road cycling events. Participants will finish the ride with a lap of Herne Hill Velodrome, the venue for the track cycling events at the 1948 London Olympics.
