The Power of DevRel: A Community of Leaders and Learners

Developer Relations (DevRel) is not just about marketing, sales, or evangelism. It’s also about building trust, fostering collaboration, and empowering developers to solve problems. In this keynote, I will share best practices on how to create a supportive and inclusive DevRel community that can inspire and influence others. I will also discuss the importance of being a role model of professionalism and ethics in your DevRel activities, both within and outside your company.
