NPR News App Team released best practices as GitHub repo



NPR Apps best practices for READMEs, HTML & CSS, Javascript, GIT, and more.

Not only useful for wannabe journo-coders, but also helps you get a sense of NPR tackling traditional journalism issues like style consistency beyond the written copy in the modern technology. And props to them for making it available on GitHub.

We love that NPR has made this available on GitHub. For design tips from NPR’s Digital Media Design Director, David Wright, check out the slides and audio from his ONA12 session, Design is How It Works

Saw this in speech from NPR’s Wright in person last week. Stuff like this inspires you to work harder on your own site development. — Ernie @ SFB

Apple Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller • Discussing the influx of student iOS and OS X app developers, many of whom have yet to even finish high school, in a new profile by the Wall Street Journal.
