Jason, Mary, and PJ do an end of year wrap-up on the highs, lows, and day-to-day of 2017. We talk about the tough parts of being in DevRel, the importance of diversity, and other topics we've seen this year.
Episode 18 finds Jason and PJ in Pittsburgh at Uptime Conf! We took the opportunity to sit down with Community Organizer and Pittsburgh Advocate, Justin Reese.
In this episode, Mary, Jason, and PJ sit down with the illustrious Anil Dash of Fog Creek Software to discuss interactions with people, why DevRel is so important yet misunderstood, and Anil's cool new project, Glitch.com.
While none of our guests for this episode have "Community Manager" in their title, these folks know a lot about building local communities. Jason and Mary chat with some of the top people behind Ignite Talks (ignitetalks.io) about building communities, drawing people together, and how to know when your plans need to pivot.
Jason, Mary, and PJ sit down with Kim Bannerman (@kmbannerman) and Eamon Leonard (@eamonleonard) about how to start a community. We meander down that topic while exploring the rabbit holes of burnout, dealing with difficult community members, who actually makes up a community, what separates a leader from a participant, and more.
