I don't know about the rest of you, but this past week came out of nowhere and kicked me hard. I heard from several other folks that it wasn't an easy week for them either. If you can relate to this sentiment, know that you've got people on your side and in your corner! For me, it was the trifecta of not feeling 100% physically, failing to take a break from work over the weekend, and my first major conference of the year.
Between those three, I've ridden the roller coaster of feeling energized by being around passionate developers and a handful of like-minded DevRelians while at SCaLE 17x, but also struggled with keeping up with work (hence the late newsletter!) and keeping myself rested enough to enjoy the highs.
But we have a new week ahead of us and a lot of content to sift through today! So grab your favorite caffeinated beverage at your favorite café (bonus: if you care to share what your favorite café is, I'm always open to hearing about new places!) and dig in.
Developer Avocados 🥑
Stay Tuned for More Avocados
The talk that I'm giving this weekend at SCaLE 17x is all about the business value of Developer Relations (surprise, surprise), but I'm putting a fun twist on it. It's been a while since I first posted the origin story of the Developer Avocado and I plan to update the post shortly after this talk! It will include new information, including new terminology and more a in-depth explanation of how this analogy can help you sell the value of DevRel internally. Stay tuned!
