Life and Code’s Data Journalism Resource Guide

This is an offshoot of the Life and Code Learn to Code for Journalists Guide.  Both guides are lists of free resources available online to everyone, either for journalists looking to learn to code or looking to learn more about data journalism. I will be updating this intensively this weekend, and then continuing to update it over time. Feel free to follow me on Twitter, where I am @lisawilliams, if you want to know about updates to this guide or links about journalism tech, or if you just want to say hi.

Many thanks to Brian Boyer, Amy Webb, Gideon Lichfield, Stacy Higginbotham, Simon Rogers, John Keefe, and many others.
