The first of our videos from DevRelCon London 2015 is of Brandon West’s talk “Understanding Burnout”.
Brandon defines what burnout is and discusses a framework for talking about different kinds of burnout, with an emphasis on the types most common among evangelists. He describes why it’s important to know about and talk about burnout for both employees and managers, and provides advice on how to spot burnout.
Brandon West joined SendGrid as their first Developer Evangelist in 2011 after working as a developer for eleven years. Four years and hundreds of thousands of miles later, you can still find him at developer events talking APIs and drinking IPAs.
Technical outreach is pretty fantastic – but it’s not a magic wand. Particularly if you have a stubborn boss.
Public speaking can strike fear into the heart of many, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Mozilla Tech Speakers offers an adaptable programme for devrel events.
