Specialization and career paths for advocacy teams
For years, companies who invested in DevRel would have one person doing a variety of activities from speaking at conferences, engaging with the community, or writing content.

The result? DevRely teams are growing, so it’s essential that we start specializing roles/responsibilities. In this talk, Vera will drill down into each role specialization across developer relations with some examples from the industry.
