Daten jonglieren für Einsteigerinnen

by Kira Schacht

Ladies aufgepasst: Es geht ans Daten jonglieren. Ihr lernt, wo ihr Daten finden könnt und wie ihr erkennt, ob sie vertrauenswürdig sind. Wir basteln mit einfachen Tools eigene bunte Grafiken, und Bonus: Ihr lernt, wie Websites aufgebaut sind, und baut selbst kleine Seiten, um eure Ergebnisse zu präsentieren. Und keine Sorge: Dieser Workshop ist anfängerinnengerecht.

Hacks/Hackers Berlin #36 – Computational Journalism and Machine Learning

In November, Hacks/Hackers Berlin will discuss how machine learning and natural language processing can be used in journalism.

Our Elena Erdmann explores how machine learning and natural language processing can be used in the newsroom. At Hacks Hackers she will give a short introduction to Machine Learning.

Also, Natalie Widmann from HURIDOCS will showcase how machine learning can support the work of human rights organisations. Haluka Maier-Borst will explain how he used machine learning in his master-thesis and the newsroom to cover the German elections for the Financial Times. Also, he will try to convince you that machines will not run newsrooms but could actually be your partner in crime as a reporter. Nicolas Merz from WZB Berlin Social Science Center works in a project that collects, digitizes and analyzes electoral programs from political parties in over 50 countries (http://manifesto-project.wzb.eu/). He will show various examples of how to apply automatic text analysis methods to electoral programs.

You can find more info about this event on Meetup.

Teamwork from afar

by Sakander Zirai

Today, we tackle soft skills: More and more we work with a virtual team, who’s members are scattered around the country, or in cross boarder collaboration. How do we make this work. We are going to talk communication skills, leadership and tools. As allways, everyone is welcome to join!

Interaktivität im Journalismus – Dos and Don’ts

Uncategorized by Sakander Zirai

Wir sind zu Gast beim Webworker Meetup in Düsseldorf!

Die Nerds im Newsroom sind auf dem Vormarsch: Datengetriebene Recherchen und der Trend zu mehr Programmierkompentenz ermöglichen neue Darstellungformen und Formate. Doch nicht immer, wenn Journalisten d3.js und Co bemühen, ist der Leser hinterher begeistert. Phil Ninh und Sophie Rotgeri, Datenjournalisten bei Journocode, zeigen gute und schlechte Beispiele für Interaktivität im Journalismus: Wie läuft die Umsetzung und wann ist es überhaupt sinnvoll?
