Developer Relations professionals are known for creating a lot of content and the platforms that are available to us seem to grow by the day. For this episode of Community Pulse, we’re diving into what platforms exist today and what types of content works best for each channel. We’re joined by two guests: Cassidy Williams and Joe Karlsson, who are known throughout the tech industry for their humorous tech-centric content. We’ll talk about how to know which channels and types of content are most effective in reaching our specific audience, and how to measure our success.
As the number of engineering and developer jobs continues to grow and the skillsets diversify, DevRel has seen a wave of people being let go, followed by a sudden growth in hiring across the tech industry. Taking a look at these trends over the last year or so, we decided we would go to the experts to explain how hiring looks from the recruitment side, what people can do to improve their hiring experience, and what’s different in today’s DevRel hiring landscape.
Wesley and PJ spend some time after the show to continue chatting about similarities and differences of internal and external developer relations.
While DevRel holds some universal truths, there are times when there is a difference between how we handle our external communities as opposed to our internal communities. In bringing people together, some of the approaches and interested parties may change. How do we foster communities and communicate feedback within an organization? Is it so different from “traditional” DevRel?
