IRE to offer computer-assisted reporting boot camp at Temple University

IRE will be offering a computer-assisted reporting boot camp at Temple University in Philadelphia, Penn., August 19-22. During these four days attendees will be introduced to analyzing data for stories with spreadsheets and database managers. In addition, they'll learn ways to find data, craft open records requests and negotiate for electronic information.

Because of the generosity from the Center for Public Interest Journalism we're able to offer a reduced flat rate of $200 to attend this hands-on training. Register today as seats are limited.

Experienced IRE trainers will teach you how to summarize data using Microsoft Excel and query information using Structured Query Language in Microsoft Access.

More information including hotels and a sample schedule will be posted soon. See the Boot Camps page for insturctions on how to register and information on other workshops and boot camps coming near you. For questions please contact jaimi@ire.org.
