We recently took a quick jump to the Palo Alto / Bay Area and sponsored the Evans Data Developer Relations Conference. There, we witnessed a plethora of developer evangelists and developer relations program managers across a variety of companies and industries.
We had discussions and focused learning events that enabled attendees to learn about how the Walgreens Developer Program is run. We also listened to success stories and lessons learned from everyone, with great interactive presentations from Twilio to Phillips Hue.
Our fearless leader, Joe Rago, shared his extensive knowledge about our developer program, which we actually attempted to live stream to the masses. Other then blowing minds and changing perspectives of Walgreens, he also received some great feedback on things to look forward to in our program. If you weren't there for his presentation, don't worry, the slides are embedded below!
Developer Evangelist, Drew Schweinfurth, also got to take the great opportunity to play the role of "General" at a new portion of the event dubbed the "Developer Bootcamp". This portion was a unique experience with about 20 different industry newbies and leaders that are directly invloved in molding and shaping the developer programs of their organizations. He took the role of evangelist in true fashion and talked about two major topics: Trying New Things and Onboarding Developers. The slides are embedded below:
