  • Stand-out Developer Programs

    In a previous life I did a lot of coding and extending other people’s code, which means i spent a lot of time communicating with entities who generate code: from partner companies with APIs, to vendors with proprietary libraries, to distributed open source projects whose work we mangled and remixed. Every entity has a philosophy about how they treat developers. And believe me: as a developer, whether that philosophy is stated publicly or not, you know right away how someone feels about you using their code; for example, sometimes no answer can speak louder than words – most people will interpret silence as, “we don’t care about your issue”. As David Carson famously said, “You can’t not communicate” (meaning everything you do sends a message). Without further ado, here is a short listing of some good, bad, and indifferent developer programs, with short notes on each. They might help you in building or refining your own developer outreach effort.
