Learn From Some Of The Best In The Business. We talk to people in the developer community about developer relations, public speaking and community events.
This week, we decided to revive the 2018 podcast with Andrew Grill as we bring up public speaking, the rough journey of becoming a public speaker and such. If you are in DevRel you are probably a public speaker, or want to be one. Listen to Andrew for some great advice. Andrew Grill calls himself a ‘practical futurist’. He is a professional writer, blogger and conference speaker—which means he gets paid to talk. And he wants to help you do the same. You’ll learn why the first 90 seconds of a talk are vital, how clichés kill your talk, and how to tell when you’ve hooked your audience. Andrew also gives us tips on how to survive when the tech lets you down (something many of us can identify with). He shares his insights on why Blackberry failed, why we need to broaden our understanding of quotas, and why digital diversity is the next big idea in tech. In this day and age, we can use smart devices to perform better as speakers, so we touch on how technology can benefit us when adversity kicks in.

When we talk about Developer Relations, we often talk about the three Cs: Code, Community, and Content. This week's podcast talk makes a turn at bringing those three together. Service design helps us achieve that with its principles for DevRel strategy. Delivering and designing a service is critical in making your DevRel coherent. In this podcast, John Lynch who is a Service Designer breaks down the service design thinking in the technical world with real-world examples as well as his experiences. With John as our guest, we get to discuss: - Types of Design - What defines a service? - Are services all around us? - What defines a product? - Reading and Maintaining Documentation - Working with APIs and third-party services
