Budgets Rule Everything

Posted on Friday, Nov 13, 2020
As we’ve mentioned in previous episodes, budget concerns are an ever changing part of working in DevRel. Now more than ever, DevRel teams are expanding their functions and responsibilities while stretching the idea of how we do the things we do.

Metrics, KPIs, and OKRs - Oh My!

Posted on Thursday, Aug 13, 2020

In this episode we want to discuss the topic of OKRs (or Objectives and Key Results). What are OKRs, and why are they beneficial to an organization? How do they differ from Key Performance Metrics (KPIs)? What even is a North Star?

Advocating for DevRel as a DevRel Professional

Posted on Tuesday, Jul 7, 2020

Developer Relations needs to be put into perspective for people outside the team or community. When your Developer Relations department comes under fire, how do we switch from advocating for our community to advocating for ourselves? When DevRel is new, how do you build on activities to show the importance of having a dedicated team working with the communities your organization is involved with?

These past few weeks have brought us to what we hope will be an inflection point with regard to systemic racism in the United States. We’re now asking the question: How can we work as a community in DevRel to ensure we not only address this critical moment, but actively work toward eradicating systemic racism in our industry?

After Pulse: Online Community Management

Posted on Monday, May 25, 2020

SJ, Jason, and PJ sit down to discuss their recent conversation with Marjorie and Wesley. What started as a simple conversation about online communities turned into an opportunity to learn from experts at a time when our entire industry seems to have been turned on its head. They then pivot into what makes something ephemeral versus what sticks with you and has a lasting impact on your career as well as those around you.

Connecting with our communities online is more important than ever right now. However, this isn’t something ALL DevRel teams are accustomed to. In some cases, much of the online efforts have been relegated to “community management” or support. Marjorie Anderson and Wesley Faulkner join us to talk about online communities, sharing tips, tricks, and best practices from their combined 20 years of experience.
