How “technical” do you need to be to work in developer relations?

In this talk, Brendan O’Leary says that he doesn’t have a computer science degree and has never been paid to write code. Nonetheless, he works as a developer evangelist.

He makes the case that no one should feel that their opinion or experience is less than someone who has more of a typical software engineering resume.
