Hong Kong Data Journalism Bootcamp 2018 (Jan 26-28)


With the continuous development of the Internet to meet the growth of smart cities and the coming 4th industrial revolution, cloud computing, machine learning, big data, and IoT (Internet of Things) are increasingly being integrated into the fabric of our digital lifestyle.

As smart, connected, and data driven products, services, and systems become more prevalent in this coming decade, media and business professionals will be challenged to collect and codify data for further processing, visualization, and on-demand story telling. This bootcamp aims to equip students from higher education institutions in Hong Kong with the essential skills required to function well in the data era.

Attendees will learn from experts and mentors and join with other students to collaborate in team presentation of stories based on datasets provided by the organizers. Awards will be given to outstanding presenters.
