School of Data: A series of tutorials on working with data

A project by the Open Knowledge Foundation teaching you all you need to know about dealing with data through online courses and tutorials - from where to find it, to making attractive (and efficient!) visualisations.

School of data is an project by the Open Knowledge Foundation teaching you all you need to know about dealing with data through online courses and tutorials - from where to find it, to making attractive (and efficient!) visualisations.

Tactical Tech has collaborated on the project, producing two courses (“A Gentle Introduction to Data Cleaning” and “A Gentle Introduction to Exploring and Understanding data”).

Join the online community to stay up to date with news on the data world and find out about new tools and techniques. Events are also organised to allow activists to learn about data “away from the keyboard”; get in touch with them to find out more about organising one near you.

And if you have created data visualisations worth sharing, tweet or send them to the School of Data!
