What is a developer educator?

Instead of a company paying you to create content for their products, why not have your audience pay you to create content to teach them? What a novel idea! This is the territory of the developer-educator, a title I just made up, because “instructor” or “trainer” felt too bland.

You know what this job is because you’ve probably learned from people who are full-time educators already.

Comparison between DevRel and developer educator

It is quite similar to the DevRel job, except that the output is usually more productized, with a heavy emphasis on product marketing. This is because developer educators quite literally live by what they make from their courses, workshops, and books.
