This hands-on workshop will teach journalists basic programming concepts using the Python language. The class, spread over two half-days, will introduce language basics and useful libraries in the course of a typical reporting project: scraping data from the web, analyzing a spreadsheet and visualizing the results.

Preregistration is required and seating is limited. Laptops will be provided for the training.

Workshop prerequisites: Although the class is geared toward programming beginners, attendees should have familiarity with the command line and be comfortable with databases and SQL.

This class takes place on Thursday, March 5 from 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and continues Friday, March 6, 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (Registration for this session reserves your seat for both days of this workshop and attendees are expected to attend both sessions to complete the workshop.)
