A community of technology community managers, leaders, and builders.

What does a developer evangelist/advocate do?


#1

Today I read this amazing article where Christian Heilmann defines the role of a developer evangelist

Do you agree? What’s your opinion? Do you have something to add to this list?


#2

I do agree. If anyone knows it is Christian. The difference with a community manager/leader is the technical skill set. I would not be able to do full on developer relations as I have no programming skills at all. I know about technology, which works for me doing community building and.media relations.


#3

I find myself in agreement. I haven’t written serious code in a decade (though I used to do kernel and compiler development) . I really agree inthe translation aspect, not only inside-outside developers but also between groups within my company (developers-legal, Sales-devs).

But patience of a saint is the most needed characteristics.
