What if you gave eight developers 12-weeks to learn about the art of Developer Advocacy and challenged them with the task of creating content for their fellow dev?
What could they create? What could they accomplish?
Well, You need not wonder anymore.
Through the creation of the Asurion Developer Advocacy Program, we managed to answer that very question.
