Code With Me

Next month, I’m helping out as a mentor at Code With Me, a two-day workshop for journalists who want to learn how to code (HTML/CSS/JS). This is aimed at journos without coding experience. Registration is $85; opens tomorrow.

You want to learn how to code, but the newsroom always needs you to do something else instead. Maybe you’ve even tried learning on your own, but it’s hard without someone there to help. At Code With Me, a two-day workshop, we’ll teach you how to code from the ground up so you can tell meaningful, interactive stories.

The workshop is on Friday, August 17 and Saturday, August 18, and will be held at NPR’s headquarters in the Chinatown / Mount Vernon Square area of Washington, D.C.
