I had the privilege of being on a panel with the New York Times’s Chase Davis and former YouTube designer Hong Qu at this year’s Asian American Journalists Association convention
The panel was titled, “Better Know a Developer” and my part of it was to discuss how non-programming journalists can work best with programmers.
You can see the slides here. The advice boils down to: Don’t believe in magic. Think about how you would do it yourself. And use a spreadsheet.
