The Forem Product Roadmap — with Lisa Sy & Vaidehi Joshi

We're kicking off the new season of the DevDiscuss podcast with a topic one could say is near and dear to my heart — and very relevant to all of us here on DEV.

play pause DevDiscuss

We're talking Forem — the open-source software that powers DEV and a growing number of online communities interested in transparency, accessibility, and authentic connection.

More specifically, this episode is dedicated to the Forem product roadmap — the plan we're following to accomplish critical goals as a community-building tool and business. Our product roadmap is two things in one: a 10 thousand foot view to help us arrive at the bigger picture and a 50-foot view to help us identify the granular details required to make it all happen.

In this episode, I was joined by two brilliant guests from the Forem team...

@lisasy , @vaidehijoshi , and I also dove into the differences between a product roadmap, vision, and strategy — and talked about the various audiences for this roadmap.

Whether you are active in our codebase or you're brand new to DEV, I hope that this episode helps you contextualize where Forem is headed and how your participation here is helping us drive the future of connection online.

You can follow DevDiscuss to get episode notifications and listen right in your feed — or subscribe on your platform of choice! Plus, if you leave us a review, we'll send you a free pack of thank-you stickers. Details here.
