Data Pub: Download software for statistics

For stats, we’ll go with the open source and free PSPP stats program. It is very similar to SPSS and even runs the SPSS syntax. Also PSPP has a Mac OS X version and a current Windows version.

Both can be found through links here: http://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/get.html. The Windows version has a simple installer. The Mac version is a bit more involved, and those using Macs should set aside enough time to go through the steps.

Data Pub: Protection of Journalists

The Council of Europe Platform to promote the protection of journalism and safety of journalists has been online since April this year. A short presentation and demonstration will explain how this platform is different from other online initiatives gathering and disseminating information about threats to journalists, who are the partners, how it operates, what are its objectives and how it can be useful to journalists as a source of information on threats, trends and governmental and Council of Europe responses to them.

Data Pub: Download software for SQL

Microsoft Access is the way to start. Of course, it’s only available on Windows.
If not Access, the Windows users should either install SQL Server Express 2014 found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42299.

They should select ExpressAdv 32BIT\SQLEXPRADV_x86_ENU.exe for the correct 32-bit installer or ExpressAdv 64BIT\SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe for the correct 64-bit installer. If they’re not sure which to use, then have them install the 32-bit by default. The software is free but not open source.
Or they can go open source (and free) by installing PostgreSQL from here http://www.postgresql.org/download/.  From that page, there are both 32-bit and 64-bit installers. Once PostgreSQL is installed, they should next install Navicat on top of that found here: http://www.navicat.com/download/navicat-for-postgresql. They’ll have to use the 14-day trial version unless they want to purchase it outright.

For Mac users, we’re recommending PostgreSQL for Mac followed by Navicat on top of that. PostreSQL is found here http://www.enterprisedb.com/products-services-training/pgdownload#osx  and Navicat here: http://www.navicat.com/download/navicat-for-postgresql.

Data Pub: CryptoParty

Meet journalists from all over the world who care about source protection and secure communications.

WHAT will we be doing?
This event is dedicated to sharing the art of encryption to anyone interested in learning how to install and use tools to help secure their online communications and exchange public keys.

BRING: Your laptop (Windows & Mac).

Cryptoparties try to bring crypto to the masses. Examples can't be too low-tech.

Our focus is journalists with only very basic computer skills, but geeks'n'nerds are very welcome, as well. Visitors should go home with a running crypto toolset on their laptops.

This is a cryptoparty: https://www.cryptoparty.in/organize/howto
