It’s well understood that a thriving community is one where members support each other. But how can you foster a culture of collaboration for solutions-focused developers who just want to fix bugs, solve problems and build quickly?
Watch as Developer Community Consultant Sarah-Jane Morris, founder of Listen Community Consulting, walks through the highlights of a series of interviews with Developer Product, Advocate and Community experts from companies like Slack, Shopify, Stoplight and Atlassian. She’ll cover questions and topics such as:
- How do you encourage dev to dev support from day one of community building?
- When to jump into developer community conversations, and when to lay low
- Approaches to monitoring and engaging with proprietary developer communities (online communities, docs, etc) vs. external developer communities (Stack Overflow, Reddit, etc)
- Stories of successful developer community collaborations: from bug fixes, to hires, to business building
