As part of the brand new Journalism+Design Program at Eugene Lang College, John Keefe, senior editor for Data News & Journalism Technology will be teaching this 12-week pop-up class.
Learn how to build data-driven maps, charts, bots, detectors and blinkies. Keefe will demonstrate one project each evening, most of which have direct journalistic applications. Like a cooking show, he'll walk through how to whip up each one. In some cases, you can make them simultaneously. In all cases, he'll provide the recipes for doing it yourself.
