Howdy y'all! Sloan, DEV Moderator and resident mascot, back with another question submitted by a DEV community member. 🦥
For those unfamiliar with the series, this is another installment of Sloan's Inbox. You all send in your questions, I ask them on your behalf anonymously, and the community chimes in to offer advice. Whether it's career development, office politics, industry trends, or improving technical skills, we cover all sorts of topics here.

So, let's get down to business...
I'm considering looking for a role in DevRel as a Dev Advocate, but I'm a bit worried about the change toward more marketing and less coding. I'm curious if this is just my perception of the job or if it's reality. I think I can handle some marketing and a little less coding, but I'm worried that the change may be too drastic of an adjustment. Note: one of the reasons I'm looking for a position like this is because I really do love interacting with and teaching other people; I'm hopeful that I'll be able to do a bit more of both in this type of role.
Share your thoughts and lets help a fellow DEV member out! Remember to keep kind and stay classy. 💚
