Scraping from scratch
You may have come across acronyms like HTTP and HTML, but what does it all mean, and what does it matter? The principals that underpin the web are likely simpler than you think. Understanding these ideas can help you scrape information you need from the web, as well as comprehend how, exactly, your stories reach your readers. No technical knowledge required.

No database, no problem
When and How to Create Your Own Dataset: Even if you're lucky enough to work somewhere with a strong open records law, sometimes the best data stories star with no database at all. In this class, we'll discuss when it's appropriate to build your own database out of documents or other records, and everything you'll need to consider to do the job correctly.

Tracking industrial emissions - from ETS data to companies' registries
The UK has pledged that by 2050, the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by all the cars, homes and industry in the country will be net-zero. Manufacturing and industry - that are the drivers of the country’s economy and important job providers- often escape public scrutiny. Data-led investigation from Sky News found out that 15 firms are responsible for around a sixth of all the UK's annual greenhouse gas emissions.
In order to crunch the numbers and understand who the big companies behind specific installations are, data journalist Carmen Aguilar Garcia had to analyse the European Emission Trade system data and cross-check it with the companies’ registries. In this session, she will take us through her investigation process, and share with us tips on how to deal with the ETS data.

Data collaboration in local media
10 local newsrooms across northern and mid-Norway shared large datasets, analyzed 500.000 state payments to farmers, and exposed which farmers and areas got the most state subsidies. They also used it to expose covid19-funding, the wages to public workers, and other stories.This was done with new tools in Excel 2016, that allowed the newsrooms to do data journalism without coding. Reporter Rune Ytreberg shows how they worked and how you can do the same, no matter which platform you use.

Seven ways to tell the data story
Some people struggle to find story angles in data - and some people miss fresher angles because they rely on the same approach each time. In this session Paul Bradshaw will outline the 7 most angles used when finding stories in data - and an 8th approach to using data to generate story leads - as a methodical approach to use those in ideas generation.

JavaScript basic in Observable
How JavaScript and its multiple libraries such as D3, Turf or lodash help us to do visual, explanatory and investigative journalism every day. With real-life examples, Adrián Blanco, Martín González and Yaryna Serkez will describe how they learned and integrated JavaScript in their day to day workflows and how anyone can learn it. Let's be clear, JavaScript is hard – so the session is going to be a very practical one where you will see and learn how to get started no matter what you want to do: data wrangling, data analysis or data visualization. We'll use Observable notebooks, so participants can follow and learn the basics to gather data, ask questions to their data and visiualize it.
