  • Our Challenge: Crossing the ChasmHelp Google Developer Products Cross the Chasm Picture from Wikimedia Foundation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Technology-Adoption-Lifecycle.png
  • Another way to look at itReach the Plateau of productivity Gartner Hype Cycle
  • When are we done?• When there’s so much energy and momentum that developers just assume they’ll use our platform.• When there’s a thriving ecosystem of tools, consultants, trainers, and others that we’ve never even spoken to.• When the voice of unpaid advocates for our platform is so strong ours isn’t needed.
  • We provide 2-way communicationIn addition to being advocates to developers, we are advocates for developers internally • Critical bugs, feature requests • API design, consistency, and stability • Strategies, roadmaps, timelines • Transparency
  • What are our roles?• Developer Advocates• Developer Programs Engineers• Developer Program Managers• Technical Writers
  • Developer Advocates create momentumthrough “poster child” competitive wins
  • Developer Advocates Are • Developers themselves • Trusted faces of Google in the community • People who care about developers’ needs • Deeply passionate about the products they represent
  • Developer Advocates Are Not...• Biz Dev or Sales • Developers don’t trust Biz Dev • They definitely do not trust Sales ... and platform decisions in IT are made by developers
  • Ahhhh... So they are “Evangelists”?
  • It’s in the Name“Evangelist” (noun)* 1. a writer of any of the four Gospels 2. a person who evangelizes 3. an enthusiastic advocate* Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary (http://www.merriam-webster.com)
  • It’s in the Name“Advocate” (noun)* 1. one that pleads the cause of another 2. one that defends or maintains a cause or proposal 3. one that supports or promotes the interests of another* Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary (http://www.merriam-webster.com)
  • Names change the toneDion Almaer summarized it the best“Then you put it together: Developer Advocate and afunny thing happens. What does that mean? At firstpeople think that you are advocating to developers,but it is also very important to think about the otherconnotation.You think about being an advocate of thedeveloper”Developer Advocate versus Technical Evangelist; When names change the tonehttp://almaer.com/blog/developer-advocate-versus-technical-evangelist-when-names-change-the-tone
  • Developer Advocates create momentumthrough “poster child” competitive wins
