Who is developerWorks?

We are everything you'd imagine a modern website team to be: system architects, programmers, engineers, testers, data analysts, UX designers, graphic artists, content managers and creators, video producers, social media coordinators, project managers, and more. The common thread that binds us is our passion for understanding and advocating for developers and helping them (and specifically, you!) excel.
