SJ, Jason, and PJ sit down to discuss their recent conversation with Marjorie and Wesley, when what started as a simple conversation about online communities turned into an opportunity to learn from experts at a time when our entire industry seems to have been turned on its head. They then pivot into what makes something ephemeral versus what "sticks" with you and has a lasting impact on your career as well as those around you.
Connecting with our communities online is more important than ever right now. However, this isn’t something ALL DevRel teams are accustomed to.
In some cases, much of the online efforts have been relegated to “community management” or support.
Marjorie Anderson and Wesley Faulkner join us to talk about online communities, sharing tips, tricks, and best practices from their combined 20 years of experience.
Jason flies solo on a great discussion of Codes of Conduct for events. We've brought in Carina C. Zona (CallBackWomen), Justin Reese (Code & Supply), and Tessa Mero (Cisco) to talk what works, what doesn't, and what happens when the CoC isn't followed.

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.
