Community Pulse - Episode 61 - Virtual Events and ROI - Are we getting our Money's Worth?
Over the last year, we’ve talked about virtual events quite a bit - from how to get started to bringing things together in a short period of time. That said, being a sponsor at these virtual events has been somewhat of a challenge. With no real “booth” or physical location for interaction, where can value be found in these events and how do we show the benefits to our sponsoring organizations.

Community Pulse - Episode 60 - Everything in Moderation
One of the most difficult parts of managing a community is ensuring everyone adheres to a universally acceptable system of behavior. With events, there is generally a Code of Conduct that makes it clear what behaviors are acceptable, what behaviors aren’t, and the consequences of operating outside of the rules. Sometimes it falls on an individual or a team to handle this in the online world. Today, we’ll be talking about moderation with a guest who knows exactly how it works.

The go-to place for DevRel Content
In a world where finding quality content on how to do this new job called devrel, it can be hard to find support, learn, and do a better job. Community pulse as a group is the de-facto go-to place to learn about devrel. Pretty much the basis of everything I do now they have taught me in one place or the other.
I joined a company as a developer advocate because the owners “were told by their investors it was important” and that was all they knew. So they said “go be good at this job now”. I was excited because it sounded like exactly what I wanted to do, but not exactly sure how to do it to the highest level.
I was happy to find their podcast, Mary’s book, their slack, and their community to help me on this journey and learn more about everything there is to know about devrel, and how to do it affectively. They have a ton of experience and are a great place to learn anything and everything you want to know about being successful in this crazy new role. Be sure to give them a listen.
Mary, Jason, and PJ are three of the best podcast hosts I've heard. I absolutely love listening to their expertise in each episode, and I would definitely recommend this podcast to anyone looking to learn as much as they can.
