The new and improved Developer Advocacy Handbook is out – Read Chapters 1 & 2 nowThursday, December 17th, 2020 at 7:27 pm
Eleven years ago I wrote the Developer Evangelism Handbook and since then it helped a lot of of people start a career in Developer Relations. Now a publisher approached me if they could do a print version. The negotiations are still underway, but I was sure that it is not a good plan to release the book in the state it is in. So I spent the last few days cleaning up. I edited the chapters and removed outdated examples or links to defunct products. And I added new content that is more relevant to today’s world of developer advocacy. I will release chapters bit by bit over the next weeks. Once all is live I will open the GitHub repository for contribution and feedback.
For now, head over to https://developer-advocacy.com and start with chapter one and two.
You can see the whole Table of Contents and the chapters will light up as they become available.
I wrote the new book in Markdown and I am using GitHub Pages to publish and host it. It was a fun exercise to learn Jekyll and I am still in the middle of it. The book has an automatic dark/light theme detection and should be nice to read across all kind of form factors. Once done, I will also add a serviceworker and such to make the book installable. I am also considering generating an ebook version if you are interested.
