Leaving HERE and Going to MongoDB

TwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInHacker News

About a year ago, I joined HERE Technologies as the Lead Developer Evangelist after having been at Couchbase prior. I wrote about this transition in an article titled, Moving from Couchbase to HERE, the Adventure Continues.

In the year that I’ve been at HERE, I accomplished quite a lot in Developer Relations. Some of those accomplishments include:

  • Starting the HERE stream on Twitch.
  • Revamping the technical content production strategy for the blog and YouTube channel.
  • Improving how feedback is acted on within the organization.

While I did so much more within HERE, this is where my story ends and a new one with MongoDB begins!

During my stay at HERE, I published 67 written tutorials on the blog and 12 video tutorials on YouTube, not including all of the technical Twitch streams that I participated in. I collected your feedback, participated in hackathons, and lead workshops at popular conferences and events. This was all part of an effort to improve the developer experience using HERE services and helping developers to be successful.

My role at MongoDB is going to be similar to what I’ve been doing at HERE, but a little more specific to certain aspects of Developer Relations. While you’ll still be able to find me at conferences and other events, you’ll see me mostly online through the written and video content that I produce.

On September 23, 2019 I’ll be starting my new role as a Senior Developer Advocate at MongoDB. Drop me a message regarding something you’d like to see in regards to one of the many MongoDB products and I’ll see what I can do to help.
