Do Audience Better: Lessons from 150 Newsrooms and a Year of Writing Code for The Coral Project

Over the past year, The Coral Project talked to more than 300 people from nearly 150 news organizations in more than 30 countries, and then spent a year building tools to make strong communities around journalism. In this session, project founders will kill some common misperceptions about comments, share studies to help you make informed decisions and demonstrate open-source software to create and enliven communities.
