In 2013, Stephen O’Grady published his treatise “The New Kingmakers, How Developers Conquered the World.” After laying out the rise of the developer, O’Grady ended with the warning: “Businesses needed to build and execute a strategy for attracting and engaging developers.” The rise of developer influence didn’t plateau in 2013 and in fact the pace has only quickened in the last 8 years.
