Embracing the hobbyist persona

Hobbyists represent a diverse, wide ranging population of developers who have one thing in common: passion for your product.

They typically set the tone and conversation for the culture of your DevRel/DX program, and winning them over will certainly lead to better development products.

At Twitch, we contrast the hobbyist persona with more focused verticals, like those developing at the AAA scale (AAA developers) or those trying to build businesses on our ecosystem (EcoD developers). In this talk, Tarun will share how they developed this framework with data, and how they continuously involve hobbyists throughout all of what Twitch DX provides to their developers.
