Developer Advocacy Value Cycle

The DAVC focuses on three stages of a continuous cycle: Engagement, Impact, and Enablement.

  • Engagement: Are we building the right relationships?
  • Impact: Are we helping the company be successful?
  • Enablement: Are we helping developers be successful?

By answering these three questions, developer advocates can effectively gauge how well they are performing.

We just wrapped up another GraphQL Summit! 🎉

I had the honor of working on the content for the community-focused Build track. I got to know some amazing folks along the way, and it's always a great feeling when you get to see the community thrive. 💜
