On this episode, we’re joined by Boston Globe senior newsroom developer Vince Dixon. Vince’s job is to create interactive and data-driven visuals for Boston Globe.com. He previously worked at Eater.

Vince also does a lot of visual-oriented personal passion projects for his blog, Code Review – including a look at 28 Black Pioneers in Journalism, Design, and Technology in 2019.

Vince talked about his journalism path, the types of projects he works on, and the value of knowing how to code. He also told the story of several Black journalism pioneers.
