If you haven’t come across it already, Source was launched late last year as part of the Knight-Mozilla OpenNews initiative. The platform says it aims to “amplify the impact of journalism code and the community of developers, designers, journalists, and editors who make it”.

A particularly interesting element of the site in terms of training is Source Learning, which seems to be a useful reference for anyone working in data, who can use is to see how others approach projects.

For example, according to the site, this section shares the background to the techniques used by others, such as “how journo-coders find and build web-native stories, what kinds of questions they ask of data” and “the ethics they encounter along the way”.
