Apr 17. The Lede
Columbia University School of Journalism and the Columbia Department of Computer Science are offering a unique educational opportunity this summer for students who want to build up their understanding of data. Anchored in a mix of journalism, social science and the humanities, The Lede will introduce students with little or no technical background to a host of creative practices that involve data, code and algorithms. Learn more about The Lede here, and read an excellent overview by its new (and most awesome) Director, Cathy O'Neil here. Join us this summer -- The deadline for applications is April 27!
