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.”
