Two-day conference about developer portals at scale

With the help of great co-organizers, the API The Docs team brings the conference to Germany for the first time. We’re super excited to meet the local API & documentarian community and see what challenges they face while working on scaling their developer portal. We hope to explore this theme from many angles therefore we expect submissions from various aspects – technical writers, designers, developers, product owners, stakeholders are all welcome to submit a talk.

Get ready for two days packed with talks, unconference discussions and panel talks!


This edition is organized at DHL Group's Innovation Center, a modern building dedicated to community events in Troisdorf – only 15 minutes from the Cologne/Bonn airport (CGN).
