What if your runway could take you further?

We'll see 45 million developers by 20301.

Who among them needs your product most? Which ecosystems do they depend on, and how can you meet them there? What would get whole teams to demand your tools?

Imagine improving velocity through shared clarity. Imagine inspecting your developer adoption funnel, calibrating your roadmap, and turning your users into partners.

Within weeks of engagement, you can have:

  • Practices for balancing immediate feature requests against long-term product vision
  • Sharper team alignment on customer needs
  • Identification of missing docs and other artifacts
  • Systems for sustainable community engagement
  • Evidence-based positioning for developer marketing

Through these advantages, you can make the most of your runway, clearing the path to ongoing traction and developer-led growth.

Developer Experience Research

Developer Experience Research

Set a breakpoint on your developer adoption funnel to inspect what’s working, and why. Don't rely on luck. Gather evidence, debug the hiccups.

Through structured user research, we'll create a clear picture of where your product creates the greatest impact, the docs and affordances it's missing, and concrete next steps that ensure you're building exactly what your developers need.

Technical Community Design

Technical Community Design

A healthy support community around your technology creates scaffolding for developers to help each other, which means they spend more time meeting their goals. This success builds word of mouth and cements adoption.

Let's design deliberate systems, practices and channels to harness your community's network effects.

Contributor Relations

Contributor Relations

Passionate users who contribute code, docs and bug reports are the backbone of your ecosystem. Aligning incentives with them extends reach far beyond your team.

Together, we'll devise the recognition, prompts, and contribution paths needed to keep your stars invested.

Maintainer Circuit Breakers

Maintainer Circuit Breakers

Open source turns software into movements, but managing contributions from strangers places unique demands on your engineers. Let’s reduce overwhelm, proactively.

The right mix of process, prioritization, and rotations can protect finite engineering attention while capturing the power of your emerging community.

Success in devtools is an exercise in making the right investments, repeatedly.

By enlisting your early adopters as collaborators, you can turn hunches into evidence-based roadmaps and activate grassroots advocacy.

When you learn from your users and create context with them as individuals, the resulting relationships change everything. Building scalable, repeatable practices to make this possible takes work, but the results are developers who love your product and demand your success.

Your Uploop Guide

Ana Hevesi is your interactive developer ecosystem debugger. She championed the early maker revolution at Shapeways, shaped the Node.js revolution at Nodejitsu, and stewarded the internet’s largest developer community at Stack Overflow.

Today she works with emerging developer tools teams to sharpen their focus on user success and move to the next stage of product maturity.


Our work with Ana permanently transformed the way we engage our users. We were able to validate developer needs and move forward with clarity and confidence in the next iteration of our product.

Peter Pistorius, Cofounder & CEO, Snaplet

Ana Hevesi knows developer communities at scale with a breadth and depth of understanding that only comes with building them. If you've written software over the past 15 years, you've benefited from Ana's insight, consideration and execution at a level of excellence. Ana is the lodestone for every developer community she serves.

Rob Spectre, former VP Developer Network, Twilio

Ana was my team’s secret weapon at Stack Overflow. She has a unique ability to decipher social patterns in technical contexts, and used that to help us serve developers of different generations and cultures just as we were reaching massive scale. You can count on her to synthesize user needs into actionable changes for a project of any size.
