Developer advocacy and relations seems like a pretty new industry, and something I'm becoming more and more interested in.
Since it's so new, the skills in each employee, the path they take, and the expectations from position to company vary. I've been wondering lately about how people make the jump into advocacy and relations, and where they come from.
- What's your background?
- What was your education or career path
- How did you transition from that role into developer advocacy or relations?
- How do you explain what you do to someone outside the industry?
- What particular skills might suit someone for the role? Someone who is naturally outgoing, or more technical minded?
