    DevRel Beyond Developers

    DevRel Beyond Developers

    The word “developer” has always been evolving, from assembly to systems, operations, and beyond. The term “Developer Relations” has traditionally meant we’re engaging with people who consider themselves full-time professional developers. However, over the past few years, the term “developer” has expanded to encompass more than this professional developer persona. These days, some DevRel teams advocate for, evangelize to, and create communities for SREs, Enterprise Architects, students, or decision-makers in early-stage startups, in addition to low-code or citizen developers.


    While these people may fall outside of the traditional developer persona, many DevRel teams are looking to support these people who are using our technology for one-off solutions to their problems. We’re interested in learning more about whether this changes the scope of DevRel, and if so, how.

    Where do you get started with Developer Experience? (Ep 72)

    Developer Experience (DX) has been a buzzword for the past few years and it’s only growing in popularity. But what is it exactly, and how is it different from Developer Relations or Developer Advocacy? Also, when we say “Developer Experience” is everyone actually referring to the same topic? Or are there multiple approaches?

    DevRel Survey 2022 (Ep 71)

    DevRel Survey 2022 (Ep 71)

    By the varied nature of everything that falls under the umbrella of Developer Relations, it can be difficult to get down to the trends and movements of everything we do. Add to that the bespoke nature of many DevRel programs, and we really need to work to discover what’s happening in the world we live and work in. Fortunately, a survey was done, and in this episode we will discover some of the results and find out a bit of the why we do what we do when we say we do DevRel.

Mary always provides great content

As a new person in DevRel these quick episodes help fill in some knowledge gaps.

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.

Amazing!

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.
