Why Does The Business Care? with Michael Heap

Relicans host, Ali Diamond, chats with Director of Developer Experience at Kong, Michael Heap, about transitioning from coding to managing and building a DevRel team up to around 45 people. It wasn’t his technical skills, ability to present, or charming wit that made him successful, but it was the fact that he focused on the question, “why does the business care?”
