We are pleased to announce the NPR Digital Services Q&A Cafe that will foster collaboration between stations to get the most out of Core Publisher and the NPR Story API by tapping into a community of users. In addition to asking for help from the DS Support Team, the Q&A Cafe will allow users and subject matter experts assisting each other with getting the most out of Core Publisher and the API. Our long-term goal is to facilitate collaboration with and between stations to share best practices, advice, and helpful tips on using a greater range of select DS products and technology platforms.
