Evans Data Developer Relations Conference 2016 - my sessions slides are available...
I am at the annual Evans Data Developer Relations conference (#drc2016) this week in Palo Alto, California. This is the 12th year that this conference has taken place. It is the one conference where developer relations team members from a wide collection of hardware, platform, service and software companies get together and discuss best practices, technical details, developer evangelism, developer marketing and everything else related to helping developers create cool apps and leverage APIs. During my sessions I talked in general about developer relations and developer communities. I also had the opportunity to talk about our Embarcadero Community, Delphi, RAD Studio, C++Builder and the joy of using our products to build solutions for a wide range of platforms, services and technologies. You can find my slide decks on Slideshare.

This annual conference is also a great place for me to learn new ideas about developer evangelism, developer communities and also to network with other developer relations professionals from top companies to new startups. It is amazing how many many companies have developer programs and APIs these days. If you take any company domain name and put "developer." or "api." in front of the domain you will find that just about every company has a developer relations program. I had the pleasure to talk with Uber, Walgreens, Philips, Hitachi, Amazon, Huawei, Google, Cisco, Intel, SAP, IBM and more.
I can't wait to show developers how to do more with Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio integrating with the APIs (which are almost all REST/JSON based) at many of the attendee companies.
