The Cloud Services world has shifted the entire economy. Developers are some of the most important and sought out roles in the job market. As devs are some of the smartest people on this planet, traditional marketing tactics are not nearly as effective on them. Instead, objective technical marketing, known as Developer Relations, is the way to go about.
