Community Development


Brandon West

Senior Manager of Community Development, SendGrid

Brandon West joined SendGrid as their first Developer Evangelist in 2011 after working as a developer for eleven years. Four years and hundreds of thousands of miles later, you can still find him at developer events talking APIs and drinking IPAs.

Understanding burnout

Brandon will define what burnout is and discuss a framework for talking about different kinds of burnout, with an emphasis on the types most common among evangelists. He'll describe why it's important to know about and talk about burnout for both employees and managers, and provide advice on how to spot burnout.
