Select a membership level
Just the Basics
$1
per month

Think of this as a high five as we pass each other at a conference. You don't have much to give (and that's ok!) but you'd like to express your appreciation for the work I'm doing.


You'll also get the added benefit of the theme newsletters, stored here for your convenience, and updated when I find additional information that's worthy of saving for posterity.

Virtual Newspaper, Coming Right Up
$7.50
per month

Think of this giving me a virtual $1.50 (the typical cost of a newspaper) for each issue of DevRel Weekly. At 5 issues per month, that takes us up to $7.50. You'll of course get a virtual high five from me as well!

Keeping Me Caffeinated
$25
per month

Think of this as buying me a (San Francisco-priced) coffee once a week. I'm often awake at all hours, sifting through new links, and coffee keeps me going! Black and white mocha, anyone?

About Mary Thengvall

In the 10+ years that I spent building technical communities at various companies, I always struggled to find relevant content written by other community builders. It often felt like I was alone in my search for resources to show me how best to foster relationships with and advocate for these community members.

I launched DevRel Weekly to make sure other Developer Relations professionals wouldn't find themselves in the same position. For the last year, I've curated the latest news about Developer Relations, including tips and tricks, best practices, and thought-provoking opinion pieces. My hope is that DevRel Weekly has saved you the time and effort of scouring the web for resources, instead giving you the time to focus on growing a team, proving your business value, and building relationships with your community. But creating a weekly newsletter is difficult! While I enjoy curating the content, it takes anywhere from 6-10 hours every week for me to sift through all of the links and curate a cohesive newsletter.

With your help, I can properly prioritize the work and also afford some much-needed assistance. Your monthly donation will offset the hours and money spent creating a high-quality newsletter every week and will allow me to continue producing content that advances the Developer Relations industry as a whole. With your support, I can continue to create this newsletter as a free resource for others just like you and me, who care about our technical communities and want to do our best to advocate for their needs.

As a token of my appreciation, I'll be publishing themed newsletters on occasion, highlighting the very best content related to such things as speaking at conferences, working across different teams in your organization, creating content, defining metrics, writing documentation, building an online community, and more. While these issues will be released to the email list as well, I'll update them here for my patrons as I come across additional interesting and relevant content.

You'll also have my deepest gratitude. As cheesy as it sounds, your emails, tweets, and DMs are what keep me going when it seems like this is a never-ending project. Knowing that I'm providing value for those around me is an incredible motivating factor for me, and I'm so thankful for those of you who have taken the time to reach out.
Goals
$443 of $3,000 per month
If you can help me get to $3000 per month, I'll be able to hire a content editor to help me maintain more theme-based newsletters! Win-win for everyone!
