I don’t have to tell you that data journalism is important. It has become a part of mainstream journalism now. Indian publications like The Economic Times (where I work) and of course foreign publications have been making extensive use of new data tools to produce great stories.

This New York Times feature on Reshaping New York, is a great example. Of course that’s a complex project and tough to pull off.

The Economic Times has a brilliant data blog run by Avinash. The Hindu also has one going. Papers like The Indian Express have done a few data projects as well.

TLDR: Data is becoming really important. And data skills are going to be necessary.

One Day Workshop for Data Journalism

With the good folks at Datameet, we are conducting  a day long workshop for journalists, designers or anyone who is interested in learning how to use data to tell great stories. The idea is to find a data project, deconstruct it, learn how it is done and attempt to do one ourselves. It will cost about Rs 700 (including lunch & chai).

Only 15 spots are available. So hurry up & book your spot Now!
