I'm proud to announce that I recently joined the DEV team as a community coordinator. Now one month into the gig, it's safe to say I'm digging it.
First things first, admission: I'm not a dev. However, while I've never fully committed to learning how to develop, I have learned a lot about development.
I’ve spent the last few years in the software world, working as an editor and community manager. I have a real passion for supporting devs that like to write, attending conferences, scanning the web for cool dev content, and making developer friends.
When I stumbled upon DEV, I immediately fell for the platform and community. I was struck by how many super friendly and helpful folks were around every corner. I signed up right away and not too long ago celebrated my 1-year DEV anniversary. While I’ve mostly been a fly on the wall so far, I’ve enjoyed taking in the convos of others and reading up on the advice that applies to me. After all, it’s not just tutorials here, there’s also so much shared wisdom about working in tech and general life guidance. 🙂
So, what does a community coordinator do anyway? My mixed bag of responsibilities mostly revolve around promoting all the awesome content this community is creating, supporting folks that have technical issues, and helping to make sure everybody abides by the Code of Conduct.
It's been a fun ride thus far. I'm learning loads, working with some great people, and happy to be part of this super cool
dev DEV community!
