Python programming for data journalists (additional fee)
Limited Capacity seats available

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.

Teaching Data Journalism: best practice, challenges & opportunities
The session will be an opportunity to highlight experiences of university lecturers who were involved in teaching data journalism to give an overview of what worked and what didn't and reflect on opportunities for improvement.
Data/computational/precision journalism subjects are unique in enabling students to deal with numbers and carry out some statistical analysis to make the best out of available datasets. There may well be students that are not keen on working with math, especially if they had no expectation of having to come back to it when they enrolled into a journalism programme. The aim of this session is to know how teachers could motivate students to learn basic statistics and utilise tools to make the best of their data and identify subjects to write about as part of their learning experience.
Additionally, with the proliferation of new data every day, verifying authenticity and validity of data has become increasingly important, especially if the data obtained is from social media and other less reliable spaces. How could educational institutions cope with those demands in an age of numerous fake/unreliable information sources operated by bots working over time to produce fake news and propaganda? This session aims at answering this question with an emphasis on the need for educational institutes to take data journalism education needs into account.

Derek Willis: Data journalism in coverage of politics and elections
Much of the attention around data journalism and politics has lately focused on forecasting, for good reasons. But data journalism’s role in politics and elections is and should be so much more, and as journalists we should reclaim that space. Derek Willis was in charge of the ground breaking collaborative project Election Land, where a coalition of 1100 people stood watch over the 2016 US election for the project. He will join us through a video link, and talk about the many ways that data journalism can play a role in coverage of politics and elections. Of course there will be possibilities to ask questions!

Nominated in Investigative:Breaking the dark net (VG, Norge)
Data journalism on the dark net. A complicated puzzle is put in place to reveal not only child pornography online, but also to show the police’s dubious methods of combating this type of crime, leading to both arrests and international debate. In addition, very well presented.
Presented by Oyvind Engan

De svenska skrotskeppen (DN, Sverige)
Based on a tip, the answer to the question “where do all Swedish scraped vessels go?” is looked for in public data. Great creativity in finding additional data sets. Well done from idea to presentation. (paywall)
Presented by Kristoffer Örstadius

An important work for increasing public transparency. By systematizing and making available lists of visitors, Finnish parliamentarians meetings with lobbyists are displayed.

Hunting pedophiles on the internet - a journalistic cooperation
”Användarna” (The Users) became the largest journalistic investigation in to the dark world of net paedophiles in Sweden. It was a cooperation with norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang, which had earlier published the well known net paedophile investigation ”Nedlasterne” (The Downloaders), by Håkon Höydal and Einar Otto Stangvik. Four swedish journalists (two from SvD and two from Aftonbladet) were given the norwegian data and started to hunt and confront swedish net paedophiles. A large project was set in motion, which lasted several months before publication. 72 net paedophiles were tracked in Sweden, 30 of them confronted with hidden cameras and via phone. The investigation was a large success in Sweden and led to changed laws, giving children better protection. Jani Pirttisalo Sallinen (Svenska Dagbladet) and Joachim Kerpner (Aftonbladet) are at NODA2018 to talk about the impact, journalistic cooperation and methods used to handle the very sensitive data.

The Data Journalism Den – The new hub for the data journalism community
Teemu Henriksson

The Data Journalism Den is a new global hub from the Global Editors Network, dedicated to serving the international data journalism community through the collaborative exchange of data, tools, and resources. The Den is open to all journalists, developers, designers, and organisations committed to the practice and development of data journalism. It is completely free.

Crossing borders. What happens when you set up an European data journalism network
By Lorenzo Ferrari

The European media landscape is fractured along national lines, yet we all tend to be invested by similar phenomena. Data journalism could help overcoming this segmentation, by facilitating multi-country analyses, production of multilingual contents, transnational collaboration, and so on. We've been working on this for a while, and we've learned a couple of things.

The gamification of journalism: the potential of play in news
By Raul Ferrer Conill

The importance of trying to understand this development stems from the different roles that digital games and news have in contemporary Western societies. While journalism is often regarded as the main source of information for the public to act as citizens, digital games predominantly remain considered as entertaining media. But are they? The nature of journalism and games provide a room for interaction in which both worlds can coexist in meaningful ways. Gamification, widely defined as the use of game thinking and game design techniques in non-gaming contexts has been widely implemented in digital services as an attempt to attract and increase user engagement. This type of persuasive technology focuses on tracking, quantifying, and individualizing behavior, placing the user at the center of the experience by providing tools for self-reflection, and exploiting the motivational aspects of games to drive action. In this talk I present four major examples in which news organizations have incorporated gamification in their digital outlets. Through an assessment of the cases of The Guardian, Bleacher/Report, Times of India, and Al Jazeera, I discuss how the pros and cons, and potential outcome of gamifying journalism.

Accessibility & Data Visualization: Dynamic Charts That Can Talk to Everyone 
By Michele Joel

We have a moral obligation to make content accessible to everyone. Screen readers are helpful by describing a static image, but how can screen readers communicate dynamic charts or describe the chart findings rather than just what the values display? The Data Visualization industry is rapidly evolving not only for those individuals who need accessible screen readers but for everyone. With Alexa and podcasts' popularity, the trend is to consume news and media quickly through audible means. Let's discuss this new paradigm when Data Visualization turns into Data Communication.

The decline of left and center-left parties in Europe. Looking for reasons
By Marco Giannini

The current political debate across European democracies often emphasizes the impressive failure of left and center-left political parties in Legislative elections across the entire continent, and through the last decade. But the roots of such a fall should be sought into the mutating orientation of the left-wing political forces in regards to some crucial topics like work legislation, welfare state, progressive taxation, trade unions legislation, privatizations, and social rights.A loose relation between the more conservative approach emerges, especially in political economy, if we look at how the left parties try to chase liberal voters and how their traditional constituency shift more and more left or simply abstain, dooming those historic social-democrats parties to long minority periods, or to total irrelevance in some countries.Electoral results in 14 countries are crossed with a series of repeated surveys from the European Social Surveys regarding voter turnout, age, youngsters' vote, unemployed people's vote, and other social indicators.The basic questions I'm trying to answer are who intends to vote for those parties, who is not voting for them anymore, and why.

Blockchain technology: Why journalists need to pay attention
The aims at introducing blockchain technology, which emerged from the creation of bitcoin, to data journalists in a straight-forward manner and highlight why it is important for them to pay attention to what is going in that realm and reflect upon some of the recent attempts to use blockchain technology to improve journalism and even recreate it. Examples of such initiatives are:
- Decentralized News Network (https://dnn.media)
- Publicism (http://www.publicism.nl/)
- Civil (https://joincivil.com), PressCoin (https://presscoin.com)
- Snip (https://www.snip.today)

We have two remote speakers representing one of those initiatives, namely Samit Singh and Dondrey Taylor of DNN who will be interviewed  via Skype during the session.

The session aims at asking if/how blockchain technology as a distributed database system could indeed help enhance or even transforming journalism for example in enhancing detection of fake news, decentralising newsrooms, empowering journalists' ability to analyse data, optimise expenses for news making, etc.

The aim is to bring up the topic for debate to elicit ideas and generate new questions that could be translated into in-depth research and ideas for collaboration and partnerships going forward.

Learn how to use Mecodify, an open-source tool that allows you to extract, analyze and visualise Twitter data as well as download datasets locally for importing into any social network analysis and visualisation software as well as more well-known spreadsheet tools. Additionally, there will be a section towards the end of this session to learn how to use Kumu to visualise Twitter data (mentions or responses) that were obtained from Mecodify. Apart from social network analysis to find the most influential and well-connected nodes, the session will illustrate how to visualise the data as well for easier understanding of the dynamics of those relationships.

The session will be purely hands-on so there is no presentation. However, to get started, you may want to check the Mecodify user manual as well as the official Kumu documentation.
