We’re pleased to announce Tableau as the latest sponsor of digital journalism conference news:rewired, which takes place on Friday 20 September.
Tableau’s data analyst Maxime Marboeuf will join the event’s mapping workshop, also being delivered by the Guardian’s data editor James Ball. The 45-minute workshop will look at how journalists can use a number of different tools – such as Tableau Public – to visualise data on a map.
The one day conference will cover a number of other key digital journalism skills, looking at the latest innovative techniques being used in the newsroom. This includes sessions on breaking news, online video, searching social and breaking article boundaries.
Other workshops on the day will look at areas such as verification and becoming a data-driven newsroom through effective use of content consumption information. See the full agenda here.
