One of my favourite sources of inspiration is the UserOnboard site. Samuel does a great job at breaking down the onboarding of various websites and apps in a uniquely visual way. Watching his teardowns has taught me new concepts that I've in turn been able to use to make my case with client teams.
The longer I've been working on DX (and even DevRel), the more I've started to think about Service Design. It's a concept rarely known to those not from a UX/Usability background, yet it's a huge part of what we talk about when we think of how DevRel tries to help people in every part of the developer's experience with a product.
I'm a big advocate for the development of client libraries (e.g. SDKs) for APIs, and as such I regularly get asked the question: what languages should we support? Although the answer is more complicated, a good starting point has always been the TIOBE Index for language usage. The May 2018 update has seen some interesting changes, and personally I'm happy to see Ruby back in the top 10!
Amadeus is one of those companies you've probably never heard of yet most certainly used. They are one of the big few global distribution systems for the travel industry, processing all their pricing, ticketing, booking, and other data.
I've been working pretty close with the team at Amadeus on their documentation and client libraries for their API, and earlier this month they had their first big hackathon with these new APIs. On related news: they're currently still hiring another developer advocate to join their team!.
I love how the people at Glitch (especially Anil Dash) have taken it on themselves to help move the conversation on DevRel to the next level. One of their master strokes has been their DevRel.io website where they have been diligently gathering all the blog posts and other articles from the DevRel and DX community. As a result, we now have one great place for people new to the industry to find all that has been written before.
