Get to know Hoopy

We believe that software developers play a unique role in the world. And whether you work with them as customers, users, contributors, or colleagues, then you need to tailor your strategy to their specific needs.

Our job is to help you build actionable, research-based strategies that work towards your goals while also helping your target developers to meet their goals. We do that through research, analysis, auditing, strategy development, ongoing consulting, and execution support.

We also run the DevRelCon event series, the DeveloperRelations.com website, and a series of research-based reports on dev rel industry practice.
