On March 24th, we hosted the JournoCon 2018. A data journalism bootcamp-slash-conference for students, freelance journalists and anyone wanting to learn more about the field. To those who were there: Thank you for making it an amazing day! To those who weren’t: Here’s a recap.
We are excited to announce our first one-day data journalism boot camp/conference in Berlin! If you’re a German-speaking person interested in data-driven stuff, be sure to check it out! We offer workshops, talks and discussions around every step of the data-driven workflow.
Note: Dear English-speaking person! We’re sorry, but this event will be held in German. Stay tuned for our next events, though. There will definitely be some in English!
This is exciting! We’re very happy to announce that our website — this website — is finally up and running. Here you will find documentation and tutorials from all our meetings as well as info on our projects and upcoming events.
We are journocode, a group of journalists and computer scientists from Dortmund, Germany. We’ve been meeting since October to code for journalism. We’re especially invested in data driven journalism and want to teach ourselves and everyone who is interested the skills it takes to tell stories with data. This includes, but is not limited to:
- getting and processing data properly
- visualizing data beautifully and correctly
We are committed to the concept of Open Knowledge and Open Data, which is why we will not only upload a summary of our weekly meetings here on journocode.com, but will also make any useful code available on our GitHub page.
