Operator disconnected: is developer relations forgetting the people who run the software in production?

Developer Relations is an evolving field and can be affected by industry shifts. The world is rapidly moving to cloud developers and they are being asked to run what they build, meanwhile the operators are writing more code to automate business. Is your developer relations program expanding to these audiences, how are operators and developers different, and can your team handle DevOps culture?

Hear from Nutanix’s Luke Kilpatrick, Senior Manager of DevOps Marketing and Mark Lavi Principal DevOps Advocate on how to add operators into your developer relation programs pipeline and expand and bring DevOps to all.
