It encompasses a variety of roles and titles, including developer advocate, community manager, and developer evangelist/technical ambassador.
In her Lightning Talk at the 17th annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE 17x), Mary shares what her experience has taught her about the importance of investing time and energy into building relationships with the larger technical communities.
