The world of technology is ever more complex

Technology is growing at a mind boggling pace affecting our everyday lives more than ever.

A result of this growth is the explosion of computer related tech products and the expansion of new fields in computing. Web & Cloud, Software, Hardware, IoT, Artifical Intelligence, Blockchain to name a few.

Cloud Products are increasing (more like multiplying), and each one of them come with their own intricate details with their specs, APIs, use cases, integrations. In the meanwhile there is a shortage of developers and developer training.

Easy learning and adoption are key factors in a technology’s popularity

Making it super easy to adopt complex technologies will be a key factor in determining growth and popularity of a technology, platform or product.

Product learning curve can be the difference between winning and losing.

As of this writing AWS surpassed Google Cloud in adoption and one of the reasons is the steep learning curve associated with using Google Cloud.

Once this initial battle is lost, power law suggests that the winner grows exponentially leaving the rest behind.

Customers expect well explained solutions.

Old way:

Build a product, share documentation, assign support engineers, let customers figure it all out and hope for the best.

New way:

Developer advocates show how solutions work and educate on the ways a product can be used.

Video tutorials and educational content multiply the effectiveness of developer advocates.
