For journalists keen to get to grips with data in their reporting, and visualising the results, tools like Tableau are a valuable resource, which is why we are very pleased to announce them as the latest sponsor of news:rewired.
The one-day digital journalism conference, run by Journalism.co.uk, takes place on Thursday 20 February, and will feature an array of sessions and workshops looking at the latest innovations and opportunities for journalists to harness in their digital reporting. Here is the line-up so far.
One session in particular will offer inspiration and practical tips on how to do data journalism on a budget, addressing different tools and techniques for saving time and being more efficient when producing data-driven content.
The session will feature presentations by experts within the industry, including Esa Mäkinen, news editor of data journalism for Helsingin Sanomat and David Ottewell, head of data journalism at Trinity Mirror.
Maxime Marboeuf, data analyst at Tableau Software, will also join the panel to discuss how newsrooms of any size can use the platform – which offers a free, public version of its visualisations technology – to produce powerful data stories and visualisations, even when time or money is tight.
