Working with data and publishing on the web: brand new CAR-features in Brussels

VVOJ takes a different turn in Brussels: while governments slam their doors on reporters, warehouses full of data in Europe welcome dedicated diggers as never before. That’s why the computer training (CAR) sessions in Brussels will be packed with tools and techniques for gathering, analyzing and publishing data.

Also new and promising: investigative journalists who publish their stories / reports on the Internet. For some it is a way to publish additions to stories they covered for their paper or TV-station. For others, it is an escape from the ‘njet’ they keep hearing from traditional media that don’t want to invest in in-depth journalism. How to reach an audience on the web? There are CAR-classes to teach you how.
