Who would have ever guessed that game development would be the ideal introduction to learning DevRel?

A few months before this talk at DevRelCon 2021, Bradston began his DevRel career as a Developer Advocate at IBM. Excited to take the role, but new to the space, he was afraid that he might be woefully unprepared for what was to come. But to his surprise, the years of game development experience would be his greatest strength.

Bradston shares how lessons learned from game development gave him a head-start in his DevRel career and how those lessons can amplify your content and accelerate your career growth, no matter how much experience you have.
