Bringing journalists and coders together for #wjchat, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. ET

The second Web Journalist Chat on Twitter (#wjchat) will be Wednesday (tonight) at 8 p.m. ET and I’ll be the guest moderator.

(Sidenote: #wjchat is not affiliated with Wired Journalists, the Ning network I administer for Publish2.)

Here’s a preview of what we’ll be discussing:

  • The relationship between programmers and journalists in your newsroom
  • Beyond coding skills, what journalists and developers can learn from each other
  • General resources to learn skills and specific tips

Elsewhere, Emily Monacelli posted a Q&A she did with me about the topic.

As the guest moderator, I’ll be deep into things during the chat and would greatly appreciate some real-time curation help. Drop a comment below if you’d like to help save the most insightful tweets using a Publish2 Newsgroup I’ve created.

Please join us tonight and help spread the word!

UPDATE: It was a great success! If you couldn’t make it or want to revisit the conversation, read the transcript (this one is a little easier to read).
