This list is a work in progress, and not formatted exactly as I'd like because of the limitations of Blogger. I will continue to add to existing categories, and also share resources for Blogger, Wordpress, filing FOI and PRA requests, links to individual journalists whose own sites maintain valuable resources, and legal research.
If you have resources you'd like to share, please be in touch.
DrupalCamp LA 2015
This is the annual conference, which was held in August in Irvine. As of September 2015, all the recorded sessions are still available for free. There is training for everyone from beginner to advanced, including creating a site from scratch with absolutely no Drupal knowledge. In the session information is each speaker's email address.
Narrative conferences and workshops throughout 2016, listed by the Nieman Foundation, are here.
