When you have a certain skill - like using Excel - you’ll tend to seek out the kinds of stories where you can exercise that skill. But if you’re the only person in the newsroom with that skill, you’re the ONLY PERSON doing those stories.

We’ll share our experiences as a lone person helping to grow the skills of their fellow reporters and editors through techniques such as code-clinic hours, co-programming, cheat sheets, tutorials and other (*shudder*) documentation. These practices are useful for staffs large and small, for organizations that want to increase their staffs' data skills or for a lone web developer who just wants to take a week off.
