We brought together more than 200 developer advocates & evangelists to explore the tactics and philosophies that inspire others to join a movement, rally for change, and breathe life into what might otherwise just be code.
The Seven Deadly Sins (Of Evangelism)
James Ward has been a developer evangelist for over 10 years, for companies including Adobe, Heroku, and now Salesforce.com. He presents at conferences around the world and has published numerous screencasts, blogs, and technical articles.
Exit, Voice, and Community
Leigh reboots computers and makes hackerspaces. She is a member of the Double Union women’s hackerspace in San Francisco, an administrator of the Geek Feminism wiki and blog, and adviser to the Ada Initiative.
Software Is The New Hardware
Matt is responsible for building and nurturing the Electric Imp community. He ensures their developer community has the resources and support they need to work on the projects and products they want to.
Tim has been helping make developers happier people since 2010, through community-building roles at SendGrid and Keen IO – two different, yet very similar, developer tools companies solving problems through APIs.
