A while back I did an online webinar course at the invitation of my friends at The Poynter Institute sponsored by the Knight Foundation and the American Press Institute. The topic was Powerful Data Journalism with import.io. What I wanted to stress in this course is that there is a wealth of information on the web and most of it can be accessible programatically if you have the right tools.
We’ve done a lot in the past on data journalism, so I won’t go into too much detail here – if you’re interested you can take the course on their website or follow along with my slide presentation bellow. For anyone looking to get into data journalism, this tutorial will show you how to create datasets that may help you break the next big story.
