Workbench is a new data journalism tool that combines scraping, cleaning, monitoring and visualization. In this hands-on, no-coding tutorial, you’ll learn how to use the Workbench for several different newsroom tasks. Create embeddable charts that update when new data is released, monitor a variety of data sources for changes and build sharable, reproducible workflows to clean and explore data. No coding necessary, but programmers are welcome to come learn how they can build new modules to empower other journalists.

*Please note: You must bring your own laptop to participate in this class.
