Getting Started with Streaming Data
Using live data streams for analytics is already commonplace in many news organizations, but what about using data streams to drive journalism? Real-time data capture can be an important source for everything from breaking news to investigations.
This hands-on workshop will introduce the basic concepts and hands-on skills for working with data streams using freely available tools and APIs. We’ll also discuss some of the considerations and case-studies for using this kind data capture for journalism.
Workshop leader: Susan McGregor, Assistant Director, Tow Center for Digital Journalism
