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...

Mary, Wesley, and PJ spend time considering their conversation with Amara and Kurt and the implications for a great developer experience.

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?

    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 ...

    Before the pandemic, we, as DevRel practitioners, focused most of our speaking efforts on in-person events. Now we have the option of speaking at in-person, virtual, and hybrid conferences. With this experience now in our rearview, let’s look ahead to rediscovering what the advantages are and what we get out of in-person events knowing what the other side looks like.

    In this episode, we say goodbye to our dear friend SJ Morris as co-host of the Community Pulse. Like many of us, sometimes the business of life and work makes it difficult to make time for the things we enjoy or even just time to take care of ourselves. We wanted to take the opportunity to say goodbye to SJ and also to talk about what folks can do to honestly and boldly confront their own burnout in DevRel.

    In the beginning, folks in DevRel had few paths outside of being an Individual Contributor. As our field has evolved, more opportunities have arisen for more strategic roles. DevRel leadership is one of the most sought after roles for many organizations in recent months. What should we look for when considering making the move to strategist versus the out front IC? What can we learn from those who have made that journey?

    A big part of traditional DevRel has always been speaking in front of an audience. Whether at a virtual meetup or live at a large conference, it can be complicated to navigate coming up with an idea, building a talk, getting it accepted somewhere, and actually delivering the thing. We wanted to take a look at some of the tips, tricks, and things you need to know to be successful in finding your way to becoming a great DevRel speake...

    When we create content, the ideas and concepts typically come from ourselves or our community members. But when we work for a larger organization, things get complicated. Some of us create content as a part of our day-to-day role; some of us create content outside of work hours. Now that we as DevRel professionals produce even more online content to connect with our community, there’s some ambiguity about the ownership of this cont...

    2021 has been a year of ups and downs in the world of DevRel and Community work. From the shifting quicksand of events returning in person, then virtual once again, to the massive opening of job reqs for positions under the DevRel umbrella, it’s been a wild ride. We’ve also tried new things, both on the podcast and personally, and in this episode we will cover our perspectives on the year that was 2021.

    If there’s one thing that’s true across developer relations professionals, it’s that we live to educate and support. That extends to our fellow devrels - and in recent years, a flurry of developer relations related supporting materials have surfaced; from blogs to books, tweets to (ahem) podcasts, and more. What’s the best way to dig through them all to get the support and guidance you need? Today’s guests will cover that from seve...

Luckily, today’s guests have gathered some information and crunched the numbers to help you make a mor...

    Over the last year, we’ve talked about virtual events quite a bit - from how to get started to bringing things together in a short period of time. That said, being a sponsor at these virtual events has been somewhat of a challenge. With no real “booth” or physical location for interaction, where can value be found in these events and how do we show the benefits to our sponsoring organizations. To discuss this, we brought together a...

      The Piketon Massacre

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
