Friction logging 101

One of the core functions of DevRel is to advocate for developers and make developer experience frictionless. We, DevRel at Google, use friction logs to create and provide structured feedback for products for different scenarios and help product teams deliver consistent experience across multiple products and features. In this talk, you will learn:

– What a friction log is and why it is important
– Working as a zeroth customer
– How to write a friction log
– Continuing conversations with product teams

The goal is to be able to confidently write cross-product, experience-focused feedback.
