Collect, Clean and Manipulate: A Data Journalism Workshop

Presenters

You don’t need a degree in statistics or computer science to be an investigative journalist or even to do simple fact-checking. But with the increasing number of online data collection systems, tools, lingo and technologies, it helps to know where to begin and what stories you can tell. This session will help you take the first steps in understanding, finding and interpreting data and maybe even do a mash-up or two and create a visualization. You’ll get a set of replicable case studies and methods to get you going and offer tips on when to get a developer on board.
