DevRel has evolved over the past few years and in this podcast we are talking to the groundbreaking thought leaders who are paving the way for people and organizations who want to follow DevRel best practices. To many people, Developer Relations is the community management for technical audiences, but for others it's a lot more. It's building relationships and fostering trust, it's collecting and relaying feedback to other teams or it's inspiring people to build tools to empower.
In this week's episode we are talking with Cory Althoff. Cory is an author, programmer, and speaker. He is best known for his book The Self-Taught Programmer, which introduced the term 'self-taught programmer' into the common lexicon and is available in seven languages. BookAuthority named The Self-Taught Programmer one of the greatest programming books of all time, and The Next Web listed it as one of the ten books that will help you become a better software engineer. More than 250,000 developers are part of the self-taught programmer community he created through his popular Facebook group, blog, newsletter, and Udemy course.
