Learn how to build a developer program!

Over the past 15 years of building developer programs, I have developed a tool I call the Developer Pyramid to help guide me in managing the developer programs I have helped architect and build. The Developer Pyramid is a simple construct representing how developers learn and engage with platforms, how communities grow, and how programs are structured to support both.

In this article, we are going to deconstruct the Developer Pyramid to help understand how you can apply it to your own developer program, both as a diagnostic tool to improve upon an existing program and as a blueprint for building one from scratch.
