I don't know about you, but the last two weeks have felt extraordinarily long. There's been a lot of chaos, a lot of confusion, and a lot of content! I could blame COVID-19 for the fact that we didn't get an issue out last week and that this week's issue is late, but in reality, I was busy onboarding a new employee last week in addition to onboarding a new DevRel Weekly teammate (👋 Kristen!). As any manager will tell you, the first few weeks on onboarding are awesome and rewarding and also overwhelming as you're trying to download all of the relevant information in a short period of time so that your employee can get up and running as quickly as possible!
All that to say, between the 200+ new pieces of content we were receiving per day (😳) and the long days at work, combined with the chaos that the entire world has been experiencing, the newsletter unfortunately fell to the latter half of my to-do list. However, I'm hopeful for the weeks to come as we get up and running again! In the meantime, there's lots of great content below to keep you busy for at least a few days.
One quick note before you dive in: If you are involved in running an online community and have yet to take the State of Community Management 2020 survey, please do so now, before you read one more sentence. Go ahead. I'll wait!
Great - you're back! 😊 Let's dive in.
COVID-19: The Relevant Links
I'm sure you're up to your ears in information about COVID-19, so I'll keep this short and sweet: I've come across a lot of fantastic articles, Twitter threads, and videos about remote work, online events, and how DevRel in general can adjust more swiftly to the changes that have come our way these past weeks. I've collected a few resources around each of these topics and included them below. If you know of other resources I should add, please don't hesitate to let me know.
