Knut Melvær

Job title

Head of Developer Relations




DevRelCon Deep Dives 2022

People in Developer Relations are often exposed to large audiences on the web. Of course, this can be invigorating and fun, but it also comes with risks to health and wellbeing. Negative comments, unwanted attention, and other forms of harassment aren’t uncommon in our field. Especially if you’re a person of color, identify as a woman or non-binary, or find yourself in some sort of intersection of these.

In this talk from DevRelCon Deep Dives, Knut sets out to open a conversation about how developer relations teams should approach harm reduction, with some practical advice.
