We have a pipeline problem for people with data and programming skills for journalism. There are great organizations and institutions making tremendous headway, but we need an industry-wide solution for educating the next generation of journalists.
Today there are no course materials for learning skills for building modern news applications. Although there are many books, videos, and other training materials that may utilize programming, none have journalism-centric projects as the end goals. That is where For Journalism fills an enormous need and void in existing technical journalism training.
We are creating resources to address this need by employing professional experts in specific skill areas, and we will structure our materials to have journalism contexts.
For Journalism is an effort to equip every student, mid-career journalist, professor and graduate student with the knowledge they need to learn technical skills for doing journalism.
