Building Effective Developer Communities with Bekah Hawrot Weigel

Building developer communities is hard. You don’t just have to get someone’s attention — you also have to give them a reason to stay.

It’s also hard from the developer’s side. Finding the right community — one that if informative, engaging, and a good personal fit — can be difficult to identify with so many options.

In this episode, Sean and Bekah explore what it takes to build and find effective developer communities.
