Never heard of Google News Lab? Heard about it but don’t understand it? Understand it but can’t master it? A Google trainer will walk you through all that Google offers journalists to make their stories better and their lives easier. Bring your laptop and your story ideas, and the trainer might actually use you as an example for the rest of the room – and you’ll leave the workshop with a story already underway.

Daniel Petty is a senior editor at The Denver Post in charge of the organization’s now team, a group of reporters and editors who focus on breaking and trending news stories. Previously, he was director of Audience Development, digital director of sports and social media editor for The Post. He has taught courses for the Online News Association, Society for Professional Journalists and the Google News Lab. He continues to write, report and photograph stories on occasion, mostly focusing on adventure sports and endurance events.
