About Matt’s talk

Tell us a little about the talk that you are planning to give at DevRelCon London 2023 

My talk at DevRelCon London will be alongside my colleague Randall Degges. It is going to be about maximising resilience in your developer relations teams, especially in harder economic times, such as those we’re in at the minute. DevRel teams are constantly finding themselves under more pressure to directly generate business value. 

Why should people attend your talk? What should they expect to take away from it?

So, my talk at DevRelCon will give you food for thought on how you can think about maximising the efficiency of your DevRel programs. We’ll be looking at DevRel in the context of delivering value to the business. This talk will also be an opportunity to learn how to do more with less, using some concrete examples of things that we’ve done at Snyk.

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s DevRelCon London event?

What I’m really looking forward to at DevRelCon in London is the opportunity to network with fellow practitioners of developer relations from all over the world. I’m also excited about learning some new things myself!
