Two linked data journalism workshops for hacks and hackers

Following on from the sold-out Data Journalism Camp in 2011, DEN has combined forces with the MADE project to offer two linked workshops this autumn.

DJCAMP2012 with Paul Bradshaw and Megan Knight is aimed journalists who want to turn data into compelling stories and runs from 9:30am on Friday, September 21 to 5pm on Saturday, September 22 in the Media Factory  on the University of Central Lancashire's Preston Campus. If you want to learn how to build your own data scraper and have at least a basic understanding of software development languages Ruby and / or Python, then there's a four-hour Scraping Masterclass with ScraperWiki founder Julian Todd from 9:30am to 1:30pm on Saturday, September 22, also in the Media Factory. 
Both DJCAMP2012 and the Scraping Masterclass are being co-sponsored by the MADE Project and the School of Journalism, Media and Communication at UCLan,
