Starting from the 3rd of October, I began a new challenge as Product Evangelist at Alfresco. The role is not a new entry for the famous ECM, because Ole Hejlskov covered it with success for more than one year, with the title of “Developer Evangelist” (tasks and responsibilities are more or less the same). During the on-boarding period, before joining Alfresco, one main question was in my mind:
What a Product Evangelist does in Alfresco?
What a Developer Evangelist generally is?
The confirmation that these questions should be clarified, came when I shared the news with some friends, working as developers. Only few of them knew what a Product or Developer Evangelist does in concrete. Only few of them knew which is the mission of a Product or Developer Evangelist.
To cover this , after studying the few documentation over the web, I started to write this post, sure that, sooner or later, it would be useful for the developers to clarify my role into the Alfresco ecosystem. Last but not least, writing this article, has been useful for me too, to rationalize the challenge, the tasks and the responsibilities.
