DevRel (Developer Relations) with Agile makes for a good Molotov cocktail
Most of winning the battle is managing the fight! How do you get employers to buy into Developer Relations when it’s something new and unknown to the business? How do you make something ethereal to start with fit into known Agile processes within a business?

This talk is a walk through personal experiences of taking a product which had very little to do with the developer to execute a global strategy with leadership buy-in.

This is an honest assessment of how one company grew from one woman in technology to a growth strategy, involving everyone in social media activities, development and customer support.
