re: AMA, Sam 10-yr Googler in Web DevRel VIEW POST


Congratulations Sam! 🎉

I have two questions for you -

  1. Out of all the programming languages you've worked with what's your favourite one and why ?
  2. What's the most challenging part of being in DevRel ?
  1. I love the quote of "every language either dies or lives long enough to be transpiled to JavaScript". And it's true, I think it's the most universal language we have, so it'd have to be JS (even though that's probably a predictable answer).

  2. Measuring our effectiveness is really difficult. If 100 people use a library or read a post, but go and change their behavior based on that, that's more effective than 1000's of people reading an article about something that perhaps they already understand.
