DevGuild Bottom-Up Community




Building a vibrant and loyal developer community is truly hard work, but it’s essential to the long term success of any bottom-up go-to-market strategy. DevGuild: Bottom-Up Community will bring together 200 of the brightest founders, developer community managers, and devrels to discuss the right approach to building communities that last.


DevGuild: Bottom-Up Community is a half-day conference for founders, community managers, and devrels who build and scale developer communities that drive developer love and product revenue.

Through a combination of keynote sessions, case studies, and panels, we’ll guide you through the distinct challenges developer companies face as they establish and scale their developer communities. Hear real stories from seasoned community builders and developer startup founders, and leave with a clear framework for building your own vibrant community.

Past DevGuild speakers include leaders from PagerDuty, Twilio, MuleSoft, GitLab, HashiCorp, Auth0, Stripe, and more.


Topics and themes that we’ll be exploring at DevGuild: Bottom-Up Community include:

  • The tools and services the best community builders use to manage their communities
  • Establishing an ambassador or champions programs
  • Modeling behavior to curate a healthy community for everyone
  • Community onboarding strategies
  • Successfully bringing your online community offline
  • Capturing the energy and excitement of your community to build new partnerships and integrations
  • The ways you can misuse your community
