Data Culture Project
DataBasic.io is the brainchild of Catherine D’Ignazio and Rahul Bhargava
A self-service learning program of 6 topics, each containing several activities, to facilitate fun, creative introductions to working with data for the non-technical folks in your organization. These are not boring spreadsheet trainings. The free tools and activites are hands-on and designed to meet people where they are across your organization and build their capacity to work with data. Try to kickstart your data culture by running one activity per month as a brown bag lunch. The videos and facilitation guides below will lead you through running them yourself.
