I gave a keynote earlier this week at New Relic’s Future Stack conference and the speaker before me represented The Sun (a WordPress shop).
Daily Mail parent company DGMT is doing some really interesting B2B stuff with serverless.
The New York Times has been at the forefront of API-driven news operations, and has a great tech blog, Open. Yesterday on stage at Amazon Web Summit CTO Werner Vogels announced that the Guardian is going All In on AWS Cloud services. I have written about the Guardian tech team before – suffice to say the organisation has been a magnet for UK tech talent and has done some great work, notably investing in data-driven journalism and story-telling.
The Mail Online’s data approach is rather more oriented to clicks, flesh tones and lowest common denominator. It also looks like a dumpster fire. But for developers that want to work in high scale environments? The Mail is one. I assume we’ll see it sponsor more Node conferences.

Media companies have web scale problems, and organisations like Buzzfeed are definitely tech companies first… It’s a natural shift as these older media companies compete for eyeballs, clicks and advertising revenue.

A quick google search shows they’re pretty active in the NYC tech scene, often hosting meetups, in particular for Women Who Code … https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Ameetup.com%20buzzfeed&rct=j
