The Virginia Press Foundation is proud to bring you the second-annual Newsroom Tech-Shop. This year, database editor for the Washington Post and Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist, Steven Rich will lead an in-depth session on data journalism–starting at an introductory level and building up as the session continues.
From Steven Rich: “At this year’s Tech Shop, we’ll learn all about data journalism, from how to analyze that spreadsheet you were given to how to get that PDF file into an actual spreadsheet. We’ll learn all the basics as well as what is possible with data. You’ll go back to the newsroom ready to interpret data for your all of your stories.”
The Tech-Shop will close out with a 30-minute round table with Steven and Virginian-Pilot investigative reporter, Gary Harki, discussing new tools they think all reporters should be using.
