Description

Using a free Firefox add-on, and some simple code that anyone can understand (it's practically plain English), we'll learn how to "interview" sprawling datasets to find strong reporting leads, using data from this story. (Or in geek-speak: An introduction to SQLite databases.)

Investigation generates more material than news reporting – so you have to organize it as you proceed, or lose the value of your work. We will show you how to create a database from your research, and then how to shape this database into a narrative structure. These processes make your work more efficient, and your product more accurate. Then, we discuss specific techniques to manage the momentum and impact of the narrative.
