While the visual presentation of data has been part of news since its earliest days, it’s in the midst of a renaissance. Building graphics, data visualizations, and complex interactives is quickly becoming a central part of every newsroom’s daily journalism operation. During this session, we'll take a look at examples of data visualizations that are pushing the boundaries of modern visual storytelling, and we’ll learn how to think about presenting data visually, how and why it works, and how to do it the right way.

Note: Data Labs have 38 seats with computers. These workshops may reach capacity quickly, so we recommend you arrive early.
