Community, Common Room
Welcome to the Uncommon Book Club - a gathering place for learning from community authors. We're thrilled to be featuring Mary Thengvall to discuss her book, The Business Value of Developer Relations: How and Why Technical Communities Are Key To Your Success.
And if you're one of the first 100 people to register, we'll send you a free Kindle version of the book!
What you'll learn
We'll focus conversation topics around a few themes from Mary's book, including the value of a developer community, how to build one, and how to maintain positive relationships with that community. We'll also be asking her some questions submitted by the audience (that's you!), which you can include when you register.
