About Myrsini’s talk

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

So, my talk is about how to tackle an unexpected reduction in your resources. My goal is to equip people with a mechanism they can use so they can ensure they’re taking the right steps after a budget talk. 

Many DevRel budgets have been cut because of the recession. Perhaps you are only building your program out now and have to work with limited resources. I will explore how to make less more. I will be going through practical tips for creating meaningful DevRel programs and activities without a budget, or with a low direct budget.

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

In the current economic, macroeconomic climate, and general economic uncertainty we’re all experiencing, it is not unusual for businesses to try and cut down on costs in all areas. It’s a very real thing happening across the tech industry at the moment. Being proactive when faced with a budget challenge can help DevRel teams still deliver on their goals. Whether you work for a startup or multi-thousand people company, I will present some helpful solutions. That is why this talk should not be missed.

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

I’ve attended a few DevRelCons in the past, and every event for me has been such a welcoming space, and essentially a community of peers. It’s a great opportunity to network, share, and learn from other folks. Whether someone is starting their career in DevRel, or whether you’ve been in DevRel for a while, there will definitely be some content, a talk of interest, or a conversation that you can have with others to help you along your DevRel journey.
