The Society For News Design and Knight Foundation will partner in the next year on two unique programs. Our guiding principles: to build community and foster innovation. We’re creating a place where journalists can familiarize themselves with the concepts of human-centered design and innovation through collaboration.
In the next year, with support from Knight, we’ll continue to grow SNDMakes, a program launched in 2014, to train non-technical journalists, provide networking opportunities and prototype solutions to some of the biggest digital challenges faced by media organizations. It’s not a hackathon. We don’t declare any winners. We share whatever gets built through open-source channels such as Github.
