Windows into building Microsoft Edge (vimeo.com)
Instead of treating DevRel like a separate function, why not build it into engineering teams? After nearly two decades of a development process for Microsoft browsers that was opaque to the world, Microsoft decided to form a team to build “windows” (see what I did there?) into the engineering process so that the outside world could see what’s happening, contribute, and influence the process. Charles will discuss what he’s learned while making this transition towards openness within a large company, and the joys and perils of integrating DevRel with software engineering teams.
