Mary, Jason, and PJ officially welcome new host SJ Morris to the show! We all take the opportunity to review what we’ve done this year, talk about some trends we’ve noticed within DevRel, and generally put our final thoughts on all things 2019!
Your hosts sit down to discuss the finer points of the episode - what does happen after DevRel? We take a look at some of the antecedents leading to leaving DevRel and the options we’ve heard folks consider in our travels and conversations.
We can’t all spend the next 10-20 years on the road. So what’s next after DevRel? What does our career path look like? In this episode, we’ll talk to Matt Broberg, Shannon Burns, and Lauren Cooney, who have all segued out of Developer Relations and taken their experience into a new, exciting role. We’ll discuss how and why they did it and how their transitions have gone.
Mary and PJ recap their conversation with SJ and Jesse, diving further into where personas fit into a DevRel strategy as well as how to acknowledge when the data you’re finding doesn’t reflect the ideas represented in your strategy.
Figuring out what segment of the technical industry your product is focused on can be a difficult endeavor, but it’s necessary in order to set your DevRel team up for success. “Developers, Developers, Developers” has a nice ring to it, but in reality, is far too large of a group to focus on. In this episode of Community Pulse, our hosts are joined by Sarah-Jane Morris, Founder of Listen Community Consulting, and Jesse Davis, Executive VP of Product and Technology at Devada, to talk about audience segmentation and how it plays into building a sustainable DevRel strategy.
