The Magical Art of Storytelling

Technology is complex and ever-changing, but one thing stays the same: humans and their love of stories.

A critical part of any Developer Relations team is sharing products and ideas, inspiring people with demos, and showcasing what’s possible. The best way to resonate with that audience is to tell a story they can relate to.

This talk will cover how to get started on your journey of storytelling. We’ll go step by step through crafting a narrative and developing the elements of a good story – the characters, the events, and the trajectory. We’ll talk about the challenges in the process, when to ask for feedback, ways to find inspiration when you feel stuck, and different methods by which to build your narrative.

All software has a story and great stories move people to action.
