GitHub for journalists (repeat)

  • Event: 2019 CAR Conference
  • Speaker: John Templon of BuzzFeed News
  • Date/Time: Saturday, Mar. 9 at 4:45pm
  • Location: Mariner Cove - conference level
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

We'll cover Github's basics features  — repositories, commits, branches, pull requests and issues — using a recent data-driven story as a case study. The goal is for you to leave the class and be able to use GitHub on your own for your next story.

**You must bring a laptop to participate in this class. You will also need to create an account at and install GitHub Desktop prior to the class. 

This session is good for: Journalists who want to collaborate on data analyses, back up their work and share their methodology with (nerdy) readers
