One-day Conference about API Documentation and Developer Portals

API The Docs is an event for tech writers, API developers, product owners and developer evangelists who embrace documentation as a crucial aspect of a great developer experience. The conference is a great opportunity to share and discuss the latest best practices, strategies and new trends relevant to API documentation and developer portals!

What's New

The first ever API The Docs conference in the USA is organized in the prestigious American Writers Museum, located on the second floor of a Michigan Avenue office building. The museum is just a few steps from Millennium Park and other cultural attractions, and it's close to a number of Chicago's major hotels. It's a cultural gem - the colorful, interactive space provides a unique event atmosphere!
