Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this half-day workshop, you’ll get hands-on experience working with data to help you beat the competition in any market. You’ll come away with plenty of quick-hit story ideas and also learn about publicly available databases that you can download and analyze to help boost your stories on deadline. We’ll walk through a number of searchable databases currently available online and show you how you can download information into a spreadsheet so you can start analyzing data as soon as you leave the workshop. No previous data experience is required for this workshop. Pre-registration is required and seating is limited. Attendees are required to bring a laptop that has Microsoft Excel installed, and their laptop chargers.
