Domo arigato, Journo Roboto! They can be invaluable in saving you time and effort in your reporting. We will demo tried-and-true examples to show how bots have assisted in creating great stories and eased access of data sets. We’ll then divide participants into varying levels of skills - from no coding skills to some coding skills - and take a deeper dive into demonstrating how you can build your own bots.
