SANTA CRUZ, CA - January 26th, 2017 – Evans Data today announced that Guy Kawasaki will be part of the keynote lineup of speakers for the 13th annual Developer Relations Conference on March 27-28, 2017 in Palo Alto, CA.
“Over the past 13 years the Developer Relations Conference has been bringing together leading authorities on developer relations and developer ecosystem strategy to meet, forge partnerships, and exchange insights on developer ecosystem development,” said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data Corp. “This year’s conference will be no exception and we’re delighted to be joined by legendary evangelist Guy Kawasaki for his keynote session on “The Art of Evangelism.”
Guy Kawasaki is the chief evangelist of Canva, an online graphic design tool. He is a brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz and an executive fellow of the Haas School of Business (UC Berkeley).

Kawasaki has a BA from Stanford University and an MBA from UCLA as well as an honorary doctorate from Babson College.
Attendees of the Developer Relations Conference can expect Guy to give a highly insightful and entertaining keynote with developer relations tips and tricks from more than three decades of developer evangelism and marketing. “I first met Guy before the Macintosh computer was launched when he delivered an early Mac to the company I was working for”, said David Intersimone (“David I), Vice President of Developer Communities for Evans Data. “I have had the distinct pleasure of introducing Guy as a keynote speaker at Borland’s developer conference. I’ve heard Guy present more times that I can remember and I learn something new from him every time. After he spoke about his 10 tips for using Social Media at our local Santa Cruz New Tech Meetup, I went home and immediately updated all of my social sites avatars and background images.”
