There’s growing pressure in newsrooms to create interactive graphics and projects for stories on deadline, but many newsrooms don’t have the resources to build custom features. Often, reporters will opt for plug-and-play tools that don’t offer much flexibility. In this session, we’ll flex those digital abs and try to find a middle ground between large custom graphics and out-the-box solutions. Some topics we’ll explore: documenting the design and build process; thinking about tool reusability early on; resources to steal code and design from … and much more!
