It's been a busy week in my world, but it's been all of the right kinds of busy. I've spent so much time engaging with so many of you! From my inaugural office hours to recording a live webinar with Vanilla to a handful of mentorship meetings, this week has reminded me of all of the reasons why I started consulting in the first place: because I love engaging with and supporting the Developer Relations community.
You all have in turn supported me and expressed your appreciation, which means the world to me. 💖 If there's ever anything I can do to help you or your team, please don't hesitate to drop me a line. What I love the most about this community is the empathy and compassion that we extend not only to our own technical communities, which is a theme throughout this week's newsletter, but to each other.
Before I let you dive into the content, I'd like to say thank you to our newest sponsor, Nylas. Nylas was one of my earliest clients and I spent a fair amount of time with their team, helping to build and nurture their fledging Developer Relations team. Be sure to take a look at this fantastic opportunity!
