Bringing Sanity to Data Projects: An Open-Source Toolkit

Managing a data analysis project, from story idea to publication, shouldn't be so hard. Go Under the Hood with this demo of an open-source toolkit that can help bring sanity to data projects, creating a code repository with boilerplate files, sharing analyses and publishing data as part of a story package.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone desperate to create a sane file structure
  • Newsrooms interested in free and open-source command-line tools
  • Leaders who would like access to AP DataKit, an open-source toolkit
