The preliminary site went live today, for the first time announcing the selected correspondents and their assignments with partnering news organizations.

As the convention nears, the site will be transformed to include a news feed featuring work by the reporting team and additional functionality.
The 2016 DNC is scheduled to take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia from July 25th-28th.

This event is organized by Technical.ly, the network of local technology news sites.
Early-bird registration is only $10.00 and includes breakfast and lunch on location, and a discounted happy hour nearby.
