A 3-day data journalism bootcamp, co-hosted by the International Center for Journalists, the Hindustan Times, Hacks/Hackers New Delhi, Data{Meet} and the 9.9 School of Communication started on Friday in the National Capital Region of Delhi, India. The program—the first of its kind—has managed to attract a mix of veteran data journalists, young media professionals, data science enthusiasts, developers and designers.

More than 60 participants are participating in the workshop, which is seeing some good cross fertilization of ideas among journalists from different types of media and techies. The speakers and mentors are the who’s who of Indian open data/data journalism community, while some of the most well-known data journalists and professionals are participating in the program.

Over the next two days, the participants will work on real life stories involving data.
