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:
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.
