I was pleased to be invited back to the University of Lincoln again yesterday to give a talk on data journalism to a couple of dozen or so journalism students…
I’ve posted a copy of the slides, as well as a set of annotated handouts onto slideshare, and to get a bump in my slideshare stats for meaningless page views, I’ve embedded the latter here too…
I was hoping to generate a copy of the slides (as images) embedded in a markdown version of the notes but couldn’t come up with a quick recipe for achieving that…
When I get a chance, it looks as if the easiest way will be to learn some VBA/Visual Basic for Applications macro scripting… So for example:
* How do I export powerpoint slide notes to individual text files?
* Using VBA To Export PowerPoint Slides To Images
If anyone beats me to it, I’m actually on a Mac, so from the looks of things on Stack Overflow, hacks will be required to get the VBA to actually work properly?
