Developer Relations or DevRel is a fast growing role that helps companies establish relationship and engage with external developers. With China, India and Japan among the Top 5 regions for open source developers* and a significant growth in the number of developers, the need for Developer Relations in Asia is increasing by the month.
Weavr’s SaaS platform helps companies listen, support and engage with developers and technical communities - all from one place and it was fun to help with DevRel Asia last week.
Weavr’s APAC Ambassador, Amit (@AmitGodbole), helped in organizing the SouthEast Asia track and captured some amazing pictures that tell the impact as well as the multitude of tasks handled by DevRels. The conference brought some amazing speakers coming from Developer Relations, Developer Marketing and Tech Product Marketing experience.
Here are 10 pictures from the conference 🥑.
