As it happened: Open-source tools for journalists and how to use them
There are many free resources and open-source tools for journalists out there, made by other journalists, news organisations, civic groups and others. They are ready to be used in your newsroom, and tailored to your own needs, but how many of them do you even know about?
In this practical workshop, Leila Haddou, data journalist at The Times and Sunday Times, and co-organiser of the Journocoders meetup, will outline 15+ open-source tools you can use in your reporting, from investigative resources, data analysis and visualisation to digital storytelling and sharing. She will also show examples of real life journalism projects using these tools and suggest ways they might be used in future.
