About Greete Palmiste

I'm an online-journalist, who for the last year or so has concentrated on multimedia stories. I believe that there is lack of coherent information and that we could easily change that. One way to do that is to give journalists better tools and know-hot to tell stories that cover more than one event and explains the bigger picture. In and information-overwhelmed world, we need more in-depth storytelling and explanatory stories. And, of course, thinking in categories and mediums that is closest to our audience.

About Olesia Kucheryk

I found interesting working with data, so myself I passed two online courses that are related to data analysis in R. In the university I developed my knowledge as here we obligatory study Scientific Python and R programming that gives me opportunity to study in deeper. 1,5 years I was a part of huge student organization and was leading a brand new project at the moment that was quite successful. I have teamleading, teambuilding and "just come down and work" skills. I don't have my own idea but it would be great helping somebody develop his or hers. I do want to work with data, build market models, analyse data, make market research or just manage it.
