About the Book

Over the years more and more developers have decided to pursue Developer Evangelism. For many, they see the opportunity to give back to the community, go to conferences, and be on the verge of the latest technology.

But what exactly does a Developer Evangelist do, and how can you prepare for your journey while avoiding the common pitfalls - including company politics and burnout?

In this book, industry leader Michael Stowe shares his experience, including what you should know before pursuing Developer Relations, and best practices to ensure you will be successful.
