Developer Marketing Leaders Are Back for the Future Developer Summit 2018

Miljana Mitic · September 07, 2018

Future Developer Summit is back September 13, Menlo Park, CA, bringing together 60+ VP & director-level champions of developer marketing in an intimate invite-only setting to share knowledge, celebrate innovative thinking and discuss the course for the future.

What goes into the creation of an award-winning documentation or live streaming communities that attract thousands of developers? What do developer personas at top tech companies look like? Do open-source developers require different engagement strategies than other dev segments? Where should developer programs invest their money in the next 5 years? 

These are the kind of questions the leaders in developer marketing are tackling every day. To bring the best practices forward, we’re excited to announce that our annual Future Developer Summit is back September 13, Menlo Park, CA! That’s right, the event falls nicely on the international Programmers’ Day, not by sheer accident. So what better way to celebrate developers than by highlighting the successes and learnings from the top tech firms who live and breathe code?
