Exploring the new role of developer advocate

In today’s career chat, we’ll talk with Chrys Wu, who has just been named The New York Times’ developer advocate.

Wu has worked in a variety of media and roles, pushing the envelope for digital journalism. Her work includes development, audience development and digital storyteller. From 3 to 4 p.m. ET, we will talk about how developers contribute to news reports, why they need an advocate and how advocates can benefit newsrooms.
