At first glance, the articles from this week seemed fairly independent and unrelated, but as I looked through the summaries again this morning, a theme made itself clear:
DevRel is a team sport.
We’re constantly working with teams across the company, collaborating and consulting, offering perspective and communicating feedback.
And here’s the key: if we’re not doing that... if there’s a week that goes by where you’re not working with a variety of teams to accomplish something that will benefit your community, then I’d wager you're hogging the ball too much and need to pass the puck to someone else at the company.
By collaborating more with teams across the company, we not only have a better opportunity to serve our community, but we solidify the value of our work in the minds of our coworkers.
