Announcing our 2015 Knight-Mozilla Fellows!| posted 2014-10-22 09:00:00 -0400>
Live from the 2014 Mozilla Festival in London, we're thrilled to introduce our 2015 Knight-Mozilla Fellows. The work that the Knight-Mozilla Fellows do during their fellowship year doesn't fit easily into a single sentence. Over the year a fellow will play the role of coder, teacher, mentor (and mentee), adventurer, colleague, and friend. They'll push themselves, and journalism, in new directions. They'll do work that has real impact--on themselves and on the web. It's a tall order, but a thrilling one, and the people we have lined up to do the work of a Knight-Mozilla Fellow in 2015 are among our very best yet. I can't wait for you to meet them. read more
We believe a community of peers working, learning, and solving problems together can create the tools journalism needs to thrive. Through fellowships that place developers in news organizations around the world, conferences for newsroom designers and coders, and a wide range of community and project support programs, we support collaboration across organizations.
