This has been a surreal and historic few weeks across the globe.

The Ethical DevRel

Posted on Monday, Mar 16, 2020

Events have a code of conduct. Projects often have rules of behavior for those who participate. There are expected rules we follow when creating content, from adhering to MLA style to ensuring ideas are delivered in a succinct way with value to the consumer. But when it comes to DevRel, there is no specific rule set or guidelines for practitioners. Beyond the external rules we need to follow as generally good humans, there is nothing to show how to be an ethical DevRel practitioner. So where does that leave us? Coraline Ada Ehmke and Don Goodman-Wilson join us to discuss this difficult topic.

After Pulse: Finding the DevRel in You

Posted on Friday, Feb 14, 2020

PJ and SJ expand on some of the topics addressed in Episode 44, including how our differences are part of what makes us uniquely capable to fulfill our Developer Relations responsibilities. They also touch on the pros and cons of creating a clear career path for the DevRel and Community industries and why it might not be necessary for you to move to San Francisco to succeed as a new DevRel professional (gasp!) as well as how our career paths are drastically different from those of our parents and grandparents.

There are generally common threads in what makes a person pick a career path. Are there common characteristics for DevRel practitioners? What are they and what does one look for to see if they are ready for the DevRel life? Amanda Folson and Geertjan Wielanga join our hosts for a great conversation exploring these topics.
