Technical Evangelists in IT
Here is why I never became a technical evangelist working for a corporation

If you’ll ask me what would be a job that you always wanted but never got, I’d answered a Technical Evangelist for a large corporation. I know how to do it, I like travel, I like meeting new people, and I can convince that the software I believe in is good for you. But. I know many great software developers who are working as technical evangelists for various companies, and I don’t like little tiny things they have to do.
Now I’m watching a recorded presentation of a person I know and respect. He presents a software of his company and compares it with another way of doing the same thing. His slide read “Our product runs fast, but their product runs faster”. And this is why I never became a technical evangelist working for a corporation. I still can afford to say what I really want to say: “The product A is slow, and the product B is fast”.
This is not to blame technical evangelists that are always on the road working hard to feed their families. I will continue attending your presentations. But I really like the fact that I can afford to say what I really want to say.
