We are often asked about the services we provide. 

Here we summarize the typical ways we normally work with clients. If you are interested in working with us, fabulous, we’d love to chat! 

  • Subscribe to our DevRel newsletter - its the simplest way to start. It’s contains free articles and extracts from our book. If there is a topic you’d like us to cover, just let us know.

  • Check out our Resources Directory, which sign posts all the great DevRel content and communities out there.

  • Buy our DevRel Book! Joking aside, for a simple $30 investment, this is your best starting point to get immersed in DevRel and to understand our approach. Everything we offer is based on the concepts and frameworks contained in the book.

  • Mentoring & coaching. This is the perfect entry level commitment if you feel you could benefit from a regular check-in to chat, get a temperature check, and get an honest, independent, and confidential perspective on the challenges you face with your DevRel program. One time or on an on-going basis.

  • Interactive Workshops. We regularly deliver packages on specific DevRel topics for DevRel practitioners and their stakeholder teams. Topics range from An Introduction to Developer Relations, Developer Relations for your Marketing Team, Creating your Developer Segmentation and Developer Personas, Market Positioning & Messaging, Developer Centric Performance Metrics, and more. Our format of 2 x 1.5 hour online workshops separated by a week for your own research and homework, has been found to be very effective by our clients.

  • Developer Journey Friction Audits. We audit and benchmark your existing Developer Program, Developer Experience, and Developer Products to identify friction in your Developer Journey.

  • DOCS & Blogs Developers Love. We have a team that loves organizing and writing technical documentation, tutorials and blogs to support your Developer's Journey.

What our clients think

This team knows Developer Relations. The comprehensive workshops helped us understand our value for developers & how to structure our offering for a Developer First approach. We’ve since created the first DevRel C-Level position!

Ivan Burazin, Chief Developer Experience Officer, Infobip

As a startup, the team put us on the right path to build our go-to-market strategy and grow our developer community and presence amongst machine learning practitioners. With your focused, ongoing strategic guidance and content creation, PerceptiLabs is now recognized amongst the ML community as a leading tool for visual-based modeling.

Martin Isaksson, CEO & Co-Founder, PerceptiLabs

Super-helpful, plenty of pointers for us to work on, and generally a good motivator to improve. It's been a pleasure as the result is great and you guys worked very independently and delivered in a short time frame. Kudos!
