Presentations

I occasionally give presentations about data journalism, news maps, coding in the newsroom and making blinky things.

Below is a list of most of my recent presentations, with links out to supporting materials if they exist.

For mapping and other workshops, I work from "scripts" and sample data I put together, which I've posted.

I also taught a class called "Make, Map, Blink" at the Journalism+Design program at the New School in New York City. The lesson notes are posted. Best to start here for those.
