Tools, Technologies, and Communities: The Three Drivers That Make This an Amazing Time for Software Developers
Cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms are democratizing technology for developers at a rapid clip. Easy access, do-it-yourself components and drag-and-drop apps have catapulted software development from the domain of techies hunched over code in siloed offices out into the daylight of everyday business, where developers are growing globally and at an ever-increasing scale.
Engaged and happy remote developers aren’t identified or sustained in a vacuum. Engagement of remote developers starts with practices championed from the top of your organization down. Your leadership needs to embrace the merits of a global, diverse workforce and support efforts that attract and retain remote employees.
When it comes to developing products, no one knows a product inside and out better than a developer. Developers know a product’s advantages, flaws, uses, and potential uses. It’s their job to know, and it’s in their bones to know.
A developer community platform is different from other online community platforms: a developer community centers around solutions. Developers engage in a community to solve problems, exchange knowledge, and find tools that help them do their jobs better. Your platform should be a highly interactive environment weighted toward coding and best practices in the field.
Developer evangelism is like trying to sell shoes to a bunch of cobblers. Software developers relate to technology, not to the brand or company behind it. They aren’t fazed by traditional marketing tactics, and their radar for being thrown the company party line is keen. You’ll get their attention after you earn street cred by demonstrating your technical know-how and ability to feel their pain. You need to gain their respect before you get their ear.
