Scaling and Measuring an Effective Developer Relations Organization


Developer relations tops the list of priorities for many infrastructure companies. After all developer interest is a key step in the go-to-market motion. Many products enter an organization bottoms-up, and months or years later, become so important to the company, they buy a contract.

How does a team scale and measure a devrel team? To answer that question, Redpoint Office Hours welcomes Shawn Wang, on Wednesday, September 22nd at 9:00 AM PT. Head of developer relations at Temporal, Shawn has worked on React and serverless JavaScript at Two Sigma, Netlify and AWS. He has started and run communities for hundreds of thousands of developers, like Svelte Society, /r/reactjs, and the React TypeScript Cheatsheet. His nontechnical writing was also recently published in the Coding Career Handbook for Junior to Senior developers.

In this session, my colleague, Sai Senthilkumar, will join Shawn to cover:

  1. The four pillars of developer relations
  2. Your north star for measuring the strength of your DevRel efforts
  3. How to successfully recruit the right developer relations team in this competitive environment

If you’re interested in attending, please register here. This event will be interactive. We will collect questions from participants during registration and try to cover them throughout the discussion. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A at the end of the session.
