Community Pulse is the spot for Developer Relations and Community professionals who are looking for information on building technical communities. Community Builders and DevRel veterans Jason Hand, Mary Thengvall, and PJ Hagerty interview experts in the field of Developer Relations and Community Leadership on a broad range of topics related to building community.
Mary and PJ join Jason to sync up on the recent episode that he hosted about Codes of Conduct. We cover a lot of ground: from the purpose that Codes of Conduct serve, to the fact that we agree to these standards in day-to-day life without realizing it, to the recent news stories about CoCs.
Jason flies solo on a great discussion of Codes of Conduct for events. We’ve brought in Carina C. Zona (CallBackWomen), Justin Reese (Code & Supply), and Tessa Mero (Cisco) to talk what works, what doesn’t, andwhat happens when the CoC isn’t followed.
Mary opens up to PJ and Jason about struggles to create an in-person personal community when we’re so often on the road. Even us extroverts need some downtime from the tech community and a chance to connect with friends, but how do we go about creating deep friendships when we aren’t home to invest in them?
Mary, Jason, and PJ get together after Episode 27: Content is Key to talk content, Mary’s upcoming book, and some of the hurdles they’ve seen to getting content out there.
One important part of the Dev Advocate lifestyle is content creation, This can range from penning the perfect tweet to blog posts to docs and tutorials. Content matters when it comes to interacting with the Community. We’ll talk about content creation and working with folks who are not content creators to make the best of your project or community’s written record.
