The digital world is growing, and with that comes high demand for tech-savvy journalists.

Journalists of all mediums can learn the basics of one rising trend — coding — at a workshop

taught by Isleta Technologies co-owner Paul Beccio during the National Native Media


Coding is a system of writing the source code for a program and is used to make computer

software, applications and websites, Beccio said.

This is a useful skill for journalists because it allows them to do things they were unable to do

before, such as build websites and sift through data more easily, he said.

The hour-long session is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, July 11, in the Potomac room of the

Crystal City Hyatt Regency Hotel. To register or for more information, visit the NAJA website.
