IRE Takeover on Data Tricks and Tactics
September 18, 2017
Our Under the Hood sessions offer a deep dive into bold ideas and are led by all types of newsroom leaders.
In this special session, our friends at Investigative Reporters and Editors, Inc. are organizing a (friendly!) takeover of one of our Under the Hood rooms. They'll discuss a variety of ways to mold data into compelling stories.
In this unconventional format, we’ll start with lightning talks on a variety of mid-career challenges.
From there, you can choose your own adventure. Pick one of the ideas that piques your interest, then do a deeper dive with the presenters.
