Today, Mary and I talk about developer relations (aka DevRel), having a popular support dog that can recognize low blood sugars, and how studying journalism didn’t prepare her at all for writing a non-fiction book.
About our guest: Mary Thengvall is a connector of people at heart, both personally and professionally. She loves digging into the strategy of how to build and foster communities and has been working with various developer communities for over 10 years. After several years of building community programs at O’Reilly Media, Chef Software, and SparkPost, she’s now consulting and contracting with companies looking to build out a Developer Relations strategy. She’s also the author of the first book on Developer Relations: The Business Value of Developer Relations (© 2018, Apress).
