Hi everyone! My name is Stella, and I work as a Community Coordinator at the EJC. I'm originally from Germany but work in the Netherlands in a small town called Maastricht now. Neither a data journalist nor a programmer, I'm fairly new to the data-world, but looking forward to exploring and getting new skills. I'm looking forward to connecting with new people and ideas in the forum and have the goal to complete (and understand) a video course for data visualisation!

Hey there! My name is Andrea. I’m a data intern from the EJC, currently based in Spain.  I’m interested in boosting my skills in Data Journalism so I can use them to investigate about global development issues. I’m particularly interested in connecting (but not limited to) with other freelance journalists interested in international development.

I have already followed some of the video courses, which I found very useful.  Looking forward to exploring more content!

Hello everybody! My name is Madeleine. I'm an Australian based in Vienna, and I'm also a data intern here at EJC. My background is in law and journalism, so I've found the Long Reads super helpful for understanding a range of issues (ethical, occupational, legal, technical etc.) relating to data journalism.

I'm eager to discuss these articles in more depth, so I'm looking forward to meeting other data-enthusiasts and sharing our opinions in the various forum threads :)

Hello everyone.

My name is Karan. I am from India, currently pursuing a career in journalism. I do not have any formal education in journalism; I am a former computer engineer who left the IT sector to become a journalist. My particular areas of interest are politics, global diplomacy and history. 

I got interested in Data journalism simply because it combines two of my favourite things: data and journalism. I tried my hands at data analytics in the past and now I am trying to regain the expertise and apply it in the field of journalism. I am quite enthusiastic to meet and discuss ideas with people having similar interests.

Hello, my name is Candido, and I'm the Bloomberg "stringer" in Luanda, Angola.
I've been a "normal" reporter for many years: I've been trying to learn Python off and off for some time and now I'm eager to try my hand at data journalism. I hate repetitive tasks and I believe Python/dataJournalism will relieve me from that boredom.
Cheers

Hi I'm Andrew and I'm a reporter at a small newspaper in the US. I have very little experience doing data journalism, but I'm eager to learn and use some of these tools to create better stories.

Hi everyone!

I am Miodrag Markovic and I am a freelance data journalist from Belgrade, Serbia. 

I have worked almost two decades as a journalist, reporter, investigative journalist and editor in news magazines, daily newspapers and digital media.

In the last few years I became interested in interactive storytelling, data journalism, computational journalism, and programming. Now, these are my main areas of professional interest and I am seeking professional opportunities in these fields.

I have programming skills in Python, JavaScript and SQL required for data analysis, data wrangling, data visualization, data and text mining, web scraping and web development. Also, I have the basic knowledge of data science and machine learning.

I would like to make contacts with colleagues around the world and contribute to some projects.
