Get started using data in your stories with IRE's mini-boot camp. In this 7-hour, hands-on workshop, IRE’s experienced trainers will start with the basics of navigating Google Sheets and using formulas, then walk you through sorting, filtering and aggregating data with pivot tables to find story ideas.
You'll come away with a solid base for using data analysis in your newsroom, including how to find and request data, identify and clean dirty data, find story ideas and bulletproof your work.
We’ll also provide you with our detailed boot camp materials to help keep you on track long after you leave the conference.
