In the last two years we at J++ have almost completely left our old buddy Excel in favor of code-based data analysis in Python Pandas. With this workshop we will try to convince you to do the same. We will introduce Python programming for journalists by showing how to perform regular Excel tasks in code:
  • Open data from different sources (csv files, Google spreadsheets etc).
  • Filter and sort a dataset to get overview.
  • Basic data analysis, visualization and story finding.
  • Workflow and best practices.
We will also discuss workflows, best practices and why you should say goodbye to Excel. The workshop is targeted at fairly experienced data journalists, but you don’t necessarily need any prior programming experience.
