The Grand Unifying DevRel Theory – Further iterations on Valuing our Work

In his career, Steve Pousty has spent as much time thinking about how to measure things as he has about developer relations.

When he looks at our conference materials and blog posts, we, as a profession, seem to be inordinately concerned with justifying ourselves through metrics. “Don’t get me wrong”, he says, “I love numbers and analysis more than the average bear”. Given our shared fascination with numbers and measurement this talk will try to get us to a deeper understanding of evaluating our work.

Steve will dig in a bit deeper on how to think about:

  • What we should work on
  • How we evaluate what we work on
  • How to tie it all together

Along the way he will talk a little about tools, models, and seeing the unseen.
