Cassidy Williams: The role of Community in Developer Experience
Show Notes

On today's episode, our hosts Sarah and Bryan are going to talk about the role of community in Developer Experience.

We're all part of communities, whether we participate in them or not.
Are they any major differences between developers centric communities and more traditional ones, centered around geography or interests? We're also seeing more and more developers communities popping up, usually launched by tech companies. What is the value proposition for those developers? How do you take care of a global community, where anything can be happening 24/7?

To help us answers these questions, we're super happy to welcome today our guest Cassidy Williams. Cassidy is Director Experience at Netlify. Outside of that role, Cassidy runs her own community newsletter, is a mechanical keyboard enthusiast and is arguably one of the funniest people on developer social media.
