If you’re planning to come to the IRE Conference in Boston next month, we’ve got a strong line-up of data-focused panels and hands-on training sessions that you won’t want to miss.
A major focus of Thursday — the conference pre-day — is dedicated to computer-assisted reporting. We’ll have sessions on negotiating for data, analyzing unstructured text, CAR for managers, investigating social networks, tracking campaign money, finding stories with maps, visualizing stories, statistical analysis, free tools, web scraping and much more. And our friends at Tableau Public are holding some training sessions, plus a special reception for the Thursday attendees.
In addition to the hands-on sessions offered on Friday and Saturday, this year we’re offering a special half-day Excel boot camp on Thursday. More information is available here.
Registering for Thursday is an additional $65, and the Excel boot camp is $20.  
See you in Boston.
