The DJA Slack Team

The DJA community now has its own Slack team!

And what a team it is… So far made of over 120 data journalists from over 35 different countries, the DJA Slack team is the place to exchange, chat and share.

To celebrate the launch of the Data Journalism Awards 2017 competition, we’ve set up a series of discussions on the DJA Slack team. We’ve had two so far. One on data journalism and virtual reality with guest speaker Simon Rogers (Google) and one on building great data journalism teams with Scott Klein (ProPublica). Both were a real success, with participants from around the world joining the conversation.

All you have to do to take part in the discussions (and catch up on previous discussions) is fill the following form to receive your invite to our new DJA Slack team. You can also get the form here.
