Sponsor API The Docs Chicago 2019

 

The first ever API The Docs conference in the USA is organized in the prestigious American Writers Museum in Chicago (IL) on 8th April 2019, in collaboration with the Write the Docs Chicago meetup group. Following the format of previous editions in Europe, the conference will be a whole-day, single track event with plenty of breaks for networking.

 

ABOUT API THE DOCS


API The Docs is a conference series for technical writers, API developers, API team leads, product owners and developer evangelists who embrace documentation as a crucial aspect of a great developer experience. The conference creates an excellent opportunity to share, discuss and learn about the latest trends and best practices of API documentation. The events were inspired by the Write the Docs conferences, but they are a standalone operation. Initiated by Pronovix, they aim to allow as many people as possible to learn about API documentation and developer portals. 



API The Docs Chicago follows previous editions in London, Paris, and Amsterdam and covers a wide variety of topics:


• Editorial workflows & writing formats and how they can be used in API teams (Git based workflows, documentation
formats like Markdown, ReStructuredText, AsciiDoc, Docbook, DITA, etc.)
• Portal technologies (Static HTML pages vs CMSs, different solutions)
• API portal strategy & tactics (positioning, viral loops, personas, evangelism)
• Top portal showcases
• Developer portal features, components, and products (SDKs, development sandboxes, API quality signals, etc.)
• API Specification languages (OpenAPI, RAML, Blueprint, etc.)
• API design and governance
• Developer experience design, gamification, and innersourcing as tools to improve API quality behind the firewall


 

WHY SPONSOR


API The Docs Chicago brings together people from North America and Europe who use, develop and design developer portals and work with API documentation. In addition to raising brand awareness and presenting your product to a relevant audience, the conference is an excellent opportunities for talent recruitment and networking with potential partners.
