Dev. Evangelism: Building a Community of Advocates

Friday, March 11
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon E
500 E 4th St

The developer community fuels today’s tech innovations, but teams are often stretched too thin to perform at the highest level. Especially for startups with small teams, getting from the first line of code to the first customer is quite a journey, and having additional support can be a huge help. Developer evangelists can serve technical teams in these and a variety of other situations by equipping them with the best tools and inspiring them to think beyond the raw code to produce revolutionary ideas. Join Clarifai, Braintree and Twilio, who all have top dev evangelism programs, as they discuss what it takes to build a successful program that benefits both developers and your company.
