DevRel and Engineering teams are essential for the development and growth of any developer-focused product. Being developer friendly and serving the needs of a developer, while complementary, are separate responsibilities. If both teams work together, they can create an ecosystem that can easily achieve both these responsibilities!
Personally, having spent almost a year as a DevRel professional, I have genuinely grown to love my job and the impact it enables me to make on my colleagues, peers, and beyond. I hope that at least some of you will get a chance to experience the magic a DevRel role lets you create for budding developers around you in the near future.
