On September 24-25 I attended the Future Developer Summit in Menlo Park, CA. It’s an event where about 60+ leaders discuss the future of developer marketing and developer relations. Here are pictures from the event. _I created collages so you will see more than 10 pictures 😉

Overall it was a great event (I will have notes posted soon). It was small (about 60 people), this means you can meet almost everyone. I hope to be back next year.
