Better Know a Developer: How Teaming Up With Tech Leads to Groundbreaking Journalism (50-min Workshop)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As traditional newsrooms continue to increase their reliance on technology and the programmers behind it, knowing how to best communicate with developers and designers can mean the difference between a powerful interactive and a story (or app) that never gets to launch. Learn what designers and developers need when you have an idea for a new way to present information, and how to better relate to the "geeks" who work with lines of code all day. We'll show you how to break the barriers between the editorial side and the tech side of your organizations and the inspiring work that can result.
