War Stories of the Developer Evangelists

Episode #189, published Fri, Dec 7, 2018, recorded Wed, Nov 21, 2018

Have you ever wondered what a developer advocate (sometimes called a dev evangelist) does? You know these folks. They are often seen at conferences working at some high-end tech company's booth or traveling from conference to conference speaking on their specialty.

Who are these folks, how did they get this job, and what is it really like to do it day to day? Join me along with Cecil Phillip from Microsoft, Matt Makai from Twilio, and Paul Everett from JetBrains to dig into what it means to be a developer advocate and how they each became one for such cool tech companies.
