This is THE annual San Francisco Bay area conference for Developer Relations and Developer Experience practioners!
June 6-7, 2019
We’re back for our fourth year and re-re-branded back to DevRelCon (from DevXcon).
This is the conference where you can meet and learn from your community of dev advocates, community managers, team managers, dev marketers, and people in many roles that share DevRel and DX responsibilities in support, docs, engineering, product, partner engineering, BD, marketing, customer success, and more!
We encourage you to submit an abstract to our conference to share your challenges, experiments, successes, and learnings.
Tracks will cover areas such as metrics, APIs, SDKs, CLIs, dev marketing, open source, community management, product, and more.
Where possible, we encourage you to consider our THEME for DevRelCon San Francisco 2019:
Diversity and Inclusion of the technical skillsets of your target users and customers
What do we mean by this? Statistically, new and junior developers are a growing majority, and the trend will continue with the success of bootcamp and online programs around the world. How can you ensure the success of your DevRel goals by planning programs and efforts that address diverse types of developers across skillsets, experiences, and backgrounds? For instance, can you safely say that your docs, tutorials, product, and messaging don’t unconsciously have a non-inclusive tone, language, or design that would lead you to miss sales opportunities or gain happy evangelizers of your product?
We welcome topics that address
We hope this theme leads to relevant talks across the the tracks, fruitful discussions, and strategies that you can take away from the conference and apply to your roles.
Tamao Nakahara, DevRelCon SF co-organizer
All the fun stuff happens with shiny new tech, right? Nah. You can get audiences excited about older tech, if you serve them well.
Are dev rel teams just here to make everyone feel good about using a technology or is there a deeper responsibility?
