Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Before we get into a broader discussion, tell us a little bit about your background.
Topic 2 - Before we dig into the New Relic Developer Program, we wanted to get your perspective on what “developer” means these days - Is it AppDev, DevOps, Data Scientist, Business Analyst? How do you try and put personas around different “developer” needs?
Topic 3 - One of the things I find in working with businesses that are going through transformational change (via technology) is how many don’t understand that their new world (“enabling developers”) will begin to look like a technology vendor’s approach to the market (“enabling developers”). Do you find your customers begin to adopt their internal programs to look like the program that you’ve rolled out with New Relic One?
Topic 4 - What are some of the most important/critical aspects of the program, and how do you measure its progress, its success, or its areas to improve?
Topic 5 - How did you think about balancing the need for content for newer developers (or new to the platform) vs. more expert-level developers?
Topic 6 - How important is community to making the program a success, and helping it scale?
