The ethics of community


PJ Hagerty

Job title

Founder/Chief Community Officer



DevRelCon 2021

Events have a code of conduct. Projects often have rules for behavior for those who participate. There are expected rules we follow when creating content, from adhering to MLA style, to ensuring ideas are delivered in a succinct way with value to the consumer.

But when it comes to DevRel, there is no specific rule set or guidelines for practitioners. Beyond the external rules we need to follow as generally good humans, there is nothing to show how to be an ethical DevRel practitioner.

In this talk from DevRelCon 2021, PJ looks at not only importance of a “Do No Harm” philosophy, but also delves into what steps each of us can take to make for a better experience for our organizations, for our communities, and for ourselves.
