Journalists & Programmers: A Crucial Partnership 

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Journalists and programmers can do magic together. Meet members of data teams who have worked together in successful investigations. They will talk in very practical terms about the key aspects of their relationship; the problems they solve; the different and complementary mindsets and skills they bring to an investigation; and the expectations they have of each other. Learn how the award-winning data investigation Swiss Leaks could not have been possible without multidisciplinary teams and more.

This session is made in collaboration with International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, ICIJ
