Keynote: Managing your first Developer Relations team

Congratulations! Building a team is an exciting (and nervewracking!) time. This talk is intended to be the “missing manual” for spinning up your first team– how to make a plan for hiring, how to create healthy team processes, and learn what your reports and your management chain need from you as a team leader. Management is a constant learning process; I don’t have all the answers, but hope that some things I’ve learned along the way can help you, too.
