Come and learn the basics of how to write Data Stories, Even If You can't Code

Data Journalism has become a part of mainstream journalism in many parts of the world. Indian publications like The Economic Times, The Hindu, Live Mint and many foreign publications have been making extensive use of new data tools to produce great stories.

This New York Times feature on Reshaping New York, is a great example. Of course that’s a complex project and tough to pull off.

Come and be part of a workshop to learn the basics of how to get started in this type of story telling.  Please bring a laptop. If you don't have one please let us know.

Only 15 spots available!
