Measuring DevRel programs far beyond marketing activities

Measuring DevRel programs far beyond marketing activities

Outreach and marketing activities (e.g events, documentation, trainings) might be the most visible part of developer relations and at that point, there are indeed good tooling and well defined metrics. However, that’s just the top of the iceberg, and is time to face that DevRel activities go far beyond from that (e.g Community, Product, Support). Are we measuring DevRel programs in the right way?

During this talk, Ana Jimenez will share a list of useful metrics and KPIs for DevRel programs

  15. DevRel tend to focus more on measuring awareness, based on social
    media, website and events. It might be because that’s what typically
    marketing analytics tools measure, and there is easy access to mature and
    well-known marketing tools
    Conclusions
    More than marketing
    analytics tools

    Looking for Insights among the different touch points (SM, mailing
    lists, collaborations hubs, chats, forums, etc) is exhausting and time
    consuming. Being able to visualize aggregated information within a
    consistent platform might be a good solution to overcome this
    problem
    More than marketing
