You’ve arrived at a crossroads. Do you turn left or right? Just like the classic “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, in this talk, the audience will decide which path to take through the jungle of common DevRel pitfalls and labyrinths, led by their experienced tour guides: Jeremy Meiss, Mary Thengvall, and yours truly!
Kicking off DevRelCon London’s Unconference, this talk offers an opportunity for audience members to choose the topics of discussion – letting attendees and online guests guide the presentation. The topics will include a round-up of the most popular DevRel questions of the day, addressing everything from metrics to org charts to budget. The conversation will be led by a trio of DevRel professionals who have 40+ years of combined experience.Continue reading “Common Pitfalls & Labyrinths: A DevRel Choose Your Own Adventure”

A replacement plan is a great resource, even when you’re not being replaced.
A year ago, as the role of OpenStack community manager at Red Hat was moving from one person to another, we started thinking about what needs to be in place to effectively transition a role. More generally, we started thinking about planning, and documenting, for your eventual replacement.
We’ll talk about what worked, what didn’t, and what had unexpected benefits for the larger community.
This presentation helps existing and new community managers take a hard look at their roles within their projects to delegate tasks, encourage future advocates, and facilitate the evolution of their community role.
Here are my absolute favorite quotes along with some of my fav images used during the actual talk.Continue reading “Passing The Torch Without Dropping The Ball”
