Hosting a Database 101/201 CARR Boot Camp at The National Press Club Today

Posting will be light as I am at the National Press Club today and tomorrow hosting a Database 101/201 CARR Boot Camp for a bunch of MSM journalists and a group of journalists-to-be from the National Journalism Center.

These boot camps are for traditional journalists and for bloggers, so if you are interested in learning how to apply statistical analyses to public policy issues and get to the real news behind the politicians press statement, you should consider attending.

Go here for a complete schedule and to enroll. Go here to view the typical boot camp agenda. There are no charges for materials or attendance. More than 200 MSM editors, producers, reporters and researchers have graduated from these boot camps during the past five years. Earlier this month, a dozen folks attended the first-ever CARR Boot Camp for bloggers at BlogNashville.
