Pre-Dataharvest Hack Day
Ahead of Dataharvest EIJC15 on Thursday May 7th we plan a hack day to crunch some data sets, so journalists (in collaboration with developers) can plan story ideas during the conference.
Focus will be on:
- EU spending – regional funds
- EU spending – farm subsidies (we have fresh data for two countries, all publications are due on April 30th)
- EU spending – FTS
- National spending according to EU rules – TED
- Data about chemicals – ECHA (agency guys will be around to guide us on what’s there, formats etc.)

Here's a pad for participants: http://pad.medialepfade.de/p/dataharvest-hack

Because we all need to know how to use it: Excel for beginners
In one single session you cannot learn all of Excel's secrets. But what you can learn are the first simple steps to build your own database or to edit a straightforward spreadsheet. That is what Crina Boros will teach you. A bit of powering through and then you can get to work. Because every journalist should be able to work with Excel.
