Join Andornot at the SLA Western Canada Chapter's Year End Event on November 24

by Jonathan Jacobsen Monday, November 02, 2015 4:23 PM

Andornot is delighted to be sponsoring the SLA Western Canada Chapter's 2015 Year End Event, on November 24, 2015. 

This year's topic is "Data Discovery and Visualization" with award-winning data journalist Chad Skelton.

There's a wealth of free data available on government open-data portals and Statistics Canada's website, but figuring out how to find the data you're looking for — and in the file format you need — can be a chore. Chad Skelton will show you how to find the data you need, whether it's where the most bike commuters live, what the most spoken languages in B.C. are or how crime rates have changed over time. Chad will also provide a brief overview of some of the free tools available for visualizing data, including Tableau Public and Google Fusion Tables.

Chad Skelton is a consultant and trainer who worked as a data journalist at The Vancouver Sun from 1998-2015 and has been an instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University since 2005 where he teaches data visualization. In 2014, Chad won an international Data Journalism Award for his portfolio of work. He has also received the Jack Webster Award, B.C.'s top journalism prize, six times, most recently in 2013 for a data project on political donations and lobbyists in B.C. 

Date: Tuesday, November 24, 2014

Location: Langara College, 100 West 49th Avenue, Vancouver BC (room C509)

Agenda: 

6:00-6:30pm: Check-in, canapes, and no-host cash bar

6:30-8:00pm: Welcome from Chapter President. Keynote presentation by Chad Skelton.

8:00-8:30pm: Closing remarks, door prizes, and refreshments

by Jonathan Jacobsen Friday, October 03, 2014 9:12 AM

Andornot is delighted to be sponsoring the SLA Western Canada Chapter's Year End Event, on November 18. 

This year's event features a special encore presentation of "Finding Those Who Don’t Want to Be Found Using Social Media and Other Cyber Tools," one of the most talked about sessions from the SLA 2014 Annual Conference in Vancouver.

Julie Clegg, principal of a leading investigative agency, will discuss how to use social media and other resources to track and locate people who do not want to be readily found. Emphasis will be placed on resources, tips and techniques that you can add to your research toolkit.

Here's what SLA conference attendees had to say about the session on Twitter:

@annenb Session on Finding Those who Don’t Want to Be Found was awesome & terrifying from privacy perspective. Best session in years.

@leighmonty Julie Clegg on SM forensics was high value. Unaware about crimes committed in virtual environments / online assault previously.

@KnowledgeLinking Julie Clegg session had WOW factor for me because she did it all in real time, showing us how to use Soc Med to find people.

This event is open to all. Tickets are now available via PayPal. 

Unable to attend in person? No problem! Live webcasting of the keynote presentation is provided by Langara College.

Date: Tuesday, November 18, 2014
