Journalists can learn lessons from coders in developing the creative future

Richard Sambrook: It's about more than learning JavaScript or Python – we need graduates who understand tech if the UK is to stay competitive
BeerBergman's insight:

The day before the official start of Dutch start-up Blendle.nl, a new concept of newspaper reading, the old question of coding or no coding competences for journalists, pops up in The Guardian (present at the start of Blendle in Utrecht, today :-). 

Even if you can say that hard coding competences is not the core activity of journalists, a thorough understanding of what technology is about, seems a non negociable issue to me.

Excerpts.

***

"It's about more than data journalism, although that certainly sits at the heart of the issue. New digital platforms and applications offer new means of illustrating and disseminating information – but should technical development simply be the province of technologists or should modern journalists take an active role in shaping these new opportunities?"

***

"

ndustry increasingly recognises the need to recruit graduates with both computer science and journalism skills. As online and mobile more clearly become the future of media, recruits are needed who can combine editorial judgment and sensibility with a technical understanding of what's possible. They also require a more entrepreneurial mindset in new graduates who will be developing the digital services on which major media brands will rest in future.

It's a new area of expertise which is opening up – and a major source of creative energy."
