Software ate the world. We're now in the second phase where developers are the most sought after commodity. HR helps you bring developers into the company fold but that's only a fraction of your true potential.
Pretty much every company provides APIs for 3rd party developers. How do you get developers to use these APIs and make your company into the infrastructure on which other companies are built?
That's where developer relations come in. They expose your company to millions of 3rd party developers. They form communities and promote your company to a valuable segment of the population: developers. This simplifies hiring and can lead to completely new lines of business.
