How journalists can become more familiar with programming

In our latest career chat, we talked with Michelle Minkoff and Nathan Griffiths, two interactive producers from the Associated Press.

They talked about how all journalists can become more familiar with programming and play a bigger role in creating interactive content. The work can take a couple directions: One is to collaborate more with developers, (something Minkoff has written about before for Poynter.org); the other is to actually learn some programming skills. Minkoff and Griffiths will offer advice for people wanting to take either direction and will answer your questions.

    Just “adding some HTML” is nearly useless. Typical Poynterspeak.
