2
Think about how other evangelists do things. Adopt some of their techniques.Commit to a todo list.I could see you starting and running a dev evangelist team. – Scott MotteInput: Make a point of identifying the facts and data that would be most valuable to others, and use this information to their advantage.
3
Make more connections in SF.Contribute to more open source.I could see you becoming the mentor/model to new dev evangelists from many companies for how to do things well. – Scott MotteInput: Identify your areas of specialization, and actively seek more information about them.
4
Make more connections in East Bay.Make vim my go to editor.I could see your Frontier Hack becoming significant. – Scott MotteWoo: Learn the names of as many people as you can. Create a file of the people you know, and add names as you become acquainted. Include a snippet of personal information — such as their birthday, favorite color, hobby, or favorite sports team.
5
Be more active in events.Do a better job mantaining relationships.I'd like to see you have something that is sort of 'yours' (that might be too ego-driven thinking. I have a tendency toward that) - like Swift did with Hacker League and ultimately MLH. That takes time, but I think it is merited for you and your talents. You should think about it if you are not. – Scott MotteIdeation: You are likely to get bored quickly, so make some small changes in your work or home life.
6
Organize more bay area events.Mantain a mailing list. I'd like to hear about your ambassador(s) a bit more. Or possibly see you work with one or two of them more in SF. I think they'd learn a lot from you and really value that. – Scott MotteCommunication: You are gifted in fostering dialogue among peers and colleagues. Use your Communication talents to summarize the various points in a meeting and to build consensus by helping others see what they have in common.
7
Attend fewer startup events.Hike more.I think as a result of this he doesn't get the chance to say 'no' very often. I think that him saying no to some things could free him up for some of his big ideas. – Scott MottePositivity: Explain that your enthusiasm is not simple naivety. You know that bad things can happen; you simply prefer to focus on the good things.
8
Travel more.Do yoga while traveling.I notice that many of the DevRel commitments tend to slip. I'm sure there are good reasons for this due to unpredictable schedules, etc. My suggestion would be to block out time to complete tasks that have been committed, or cut down on the number of commitments made to better reflect true availability and bandwidth. Perhaps adopt a 3 weeks on, one week off schedule, or something like that, to free up time for special projects? – Scott WilliamsonPositivity: Other people need to know that while you find the good in virtually every situation, you are not naïve. Recognize challenges, and communicate the reasons for your optimism. Your positive approach will be most powerful when others realize it is grounded in reality.
9
Encourage SendGrid's developer focus.Live life open source.Diversify upon non-college events which will provide better grounding - SwiftCommunication: Start a collection of stories or phrases that resonate with you. For example, cut out magazine articles that move you, or write down powerful word combinations. Practice telling these stories or saying these words out loud, by yourself. Listen to yourself actually saying the words. Refine. (+ Brandon West)
10
Listen more.Get better at saying "no"Focus on trying to do some more brand name conferences - Swift
11
Mantain a voice in the evangelism community going forward.Create and cultivate relationships outside of Startup Land.Blog posts, good stuff, but aim to do more– write your own blog - Swift
12
Have dinner parties.Open Source - write good code, that matters - Swift
13
Cook more.I'd like to see you take what you've learned from working with sales and help distribute that knowledge back to the team. Some guidelines for your process when you prepare for a trip and reach out to the TAMs and Sales and how you go about setting up meetings would be helpful. – Brandon West
14
Continue to be aware of how many things you've committed to. When you think you've got the right amount of things on your plate, remove 2 of them so you have more time for email, blogs, and personal growth :) – Brandon West
15
Get FrontierHack rolling! – Brandon West
16
A bit more responsiveness to asynchronous communications would be good. – Brandon West
17
I think you had some conflicting goals: trying to build strong relationships in East Bay is hard when you also have a goal of traveling more outside of the bay area. Try to recognize these tensions so your goals don't pull you in different directions. – Brandon West
18
Occasionally you have the tendency to be reactionary, don't jump to conclusions as quickly. – Tim Falls
