Bear Douglas speaking at DevXcon: 2018

4 & 5



Bear Douglas

Developer Advocacy Lead | Slack

Bear Douglas

Bear Douglas leads Developer Relations at Slack, where she helps people build tools to make their work lives better.

Before Slack, she worked on dev rel for mobile (Fabric) and data (GNIP) at Twitter, and at Facebook on their mobile platform and Parse. She's generally happy to help you out with your questions, and at the very least is a pretty good rubber duck.


Connecting dev rel and product

One of the cardinal sins of dev rel is being a bridge to nowhere: collecting and responding to mountains of developer feedback, but never ensuring that it gets incorporated back into product decisions and strategy. This talk will focus on how to be an effective internal advocate for your developers, and how to adapt as your org, community, and product complexity grow.
