The Journo-Tech Community Has Evolved, But How?

Over the last decade, hackers have joined the ranks of newsrooms large and small, non-profits and for-profits. We now have many tribes of news nerds, journo-hackers, data wranglers and user experience researchers. Is there a job description that actually details what we do? What are the ingredients of a successful team? We’ll discuss titles, salary, teams and other murky but critical questions in the journalism and developer communities.

Note: we work hard to provide audio recordings for most sessions, but were unable to provide it for this session due to technical difficulties. Please find coverage provided by our social team below.
