We'll explore best practices to ensure that your data projects adhere to the tenets of journalism — integrity and transparency. The panelists will walk through processes of data projects they have worked on, giving concrete (and, at times, quite technical) solutions to general pain points from the perspectives of reporters, nerds and editors. Bring your questions.
