Data journalism

A session at Open Source Bridge 2013

Thursday 20th June, 2013

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

We have a pipeline problem for people with data and programming skills for journalism. There are great organizations and institutions making tremendous headway, but we need an industry-wide solution for educating the next generation of journalists.

For Journalism is an effort to equip every student, mid-career journalist, professor and graduate student with the knowledge they need to learn technical skills for doing journalism, particularly for open data and open government initiatives.

We're working on a collection of data-centric journalism course materials with open-source code. The big difference between this project and other training materials is that everything will be contextualized to journalism. We will not be building generic social networks. We will be building campaign-finance trackers and visualizers.

We want to impact how journalists think about their craft regardless of age or experience.
