As both a content marketing strategy and a way to make our users feel like we are invested in them, I have scripted, animated and voiced a cartoon series based on user generated rants (youtube.com/devrantapp
). We also started a podcast series where my co-founder and I interview world-class developers, including DHH (creator of Ruby on Rails) and Andy Hunt (author of The Pragmatic Programmer and co-writer of The Agile Manifesto). I also created a web comic series (devComics.com
) based on user rants, one of which made it to the front page of Reddit with 30k upvotes.
