Want to learn how to work with structured data in your investigations? The Poynter Institute in Florida is again holding their Building News Applications with Data four-day seminar, in partnership with Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), from June 7 – 10.

Participants will learn how to find — and tell — stories hiding inside a data dump. They’ll also get hands-on experience with basic programming, and build a simple and useful application to take home.

Journalists are invited to bring along datasets to learn how to make it usable for their own website, and you’ll also learn how to identify viable projects that use programming to strengthen your investigative reporting.

There will even be a special session for educators on how to incorporate teaching data and programming into class work with what Matt Waite calls “small wins.”

Guest Faculty include: Aron Pilhofer, Editor of Interactive News for the New York Times, John Keefe, the Senior Executive Producer for News at WNYC, and Matt Waite, Co-founder of Hot Type Consulting LLC and the principal developer of PolitiFact, a data-driven site that fact checks things powerful people in Washington D.C.are saying.

Price is $US700 but a partial scholarship may be considered for those requiring financial assistance. Journalists from around the world are welcome.
