Would you like to learn how to connect to your data, create different types of charts, and combine them to create an interactive visualisation without any coding involved? Learn how to get started with Tableau Public in an afternoon workshop at newsrewired on 22 November. Spaces for the workshop, led by Jade Le Van, are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis – delegates should have Tableau Public installed on their laptops – it is free and can be downloaded here.
Jade works on the Tableau Public team. She helps journalists, bloggers and academics visualise their data to tell insightful stories. Her skills range from finding and cleaning data to effective data storytelling. She regularly writes and hosts webinars on these topics, and will also explain, in a short talk at newsrewired, how media organisations around the world successfully use Tableau Public in their investigative pieces.
Our next newsrewired digital journalism event will take place on 22-23 November at Reuters HQ in Canary Wharf, London. This will be Journalism.co.uk’s 20th newsrewired conference, featuring a mix of panels, talks and workshops on 22 November, followed by a full day of training for newsrewired+ delegates, who will be able to register to attend one of three full-day, practical training courses.
As usual, newsrewired will look at the latest trends and techniques in digital journalism, in a hands-on, accessible way, highlighting tools, workflows and lessons delegates can then take back to their teams and start applying in their day-to-day work.
Journalism.co.uk has started working on the agenda for the conference on 22 November, as well as the training options for 23 November, and the first speakers will be announced soon. We are now able to reveal some of the topics we plan to include on the agenda, as well as open registration for discounted early-bird tickets.
The Journalism.co.uk team has been hard at work making the final preparations for the newsrewired digital journalism conference, taking place at Reuters in London next week on 19 July.

We are very happy to announce that Anushka Asthana, joint political editor, the Guardian, and Christian Broughton, editor, The Independent, will be joining a panel discussing election coverage, reporting on polls, and making political journalism more engaging, alongside Guy Faulconbridge, Reuters UK bureau chief, and Kate McCann, senior political correspondent at The Telegraph.
