You must be logged in to purchase this item.


Friday, March 3, 9 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. 

Cost: $75

Instructors: Gabrielle LaMarr LeMee, Los Angeles Times; Andrea Suozzo, ProPublica; Ben Welsh, Big Local News


In this session, experienced journalists will guide you through a six-hour, hands-on investigation of money in politics.

You will learn:

  • just enough Python to execute an analysis with pandas, one of the most popular open-source tools for working with data tables
  • how to record, remix and republish your work using Jupyter, a browser-based tool emerging as the standard for reproducible research
  • how to explore your data using the Altair data visualization library, a Python package that offers a simple, structured grammar for generating graphics.

Along the way you’ll conduct your own investigation of California campaign donors using the Big Local News open-source database archive.

Prerequisites: If you've tried Python once or twice, have a good attitude and know how to take a few code crashes in stride, you are qualified. We want you.

Preregistration is required and seating is limited. Laptops will be provided.
