Editors and data/technology specialists can sometimes experience the frustration of not sharing the same language and knowledge, especially when they work closely as a team. To help key newsroom stakeholders share expectations and vocabulary, we will begin Hacking News Leadership: Part 2 with "Five things I wish my _______ understood." Editors will talk about things they want data specialists to know and vice versa. Take a look at our draft of the agenda for more information on sessions and presenters.
