#19: “Leaving our ‘Homesite’ Behind: The Beginnings of My Career in DevRel” with Scott McAllister of PagerDuty | Educative Sessions

November 9, 2020

Scott McAllister and his co-worker decided to drive 90 minutes to check out a ColdFusion user group at Salt Lake City. When asked if anyone's still coding in the Homesite text editor tool, they found out that they were the only ones. Scott realized that there's much more you can learn by taking the leap into an unknown community, and since then his passion for cultivating developer communities was born.
