Full-day API The Docs track at APIdays Paris 2020

The API Docs & DX track 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. It is a great opportunity to share and discuss the latest best practices, strategies and new trends relevant to API documentation and developer experience!

Code of Conduct

Every format of API The Docs follows the ground rules of the Write The Docs community: be friendly, be respectful, be careful in the words that you choose. If you need to report any issue for a reason, please contact info@apithedocs.org. All reports will be kept confidential.


Recaps & recordings

Talk recordings and slide deck of this track will be published by the APIdays team via their channels soon after the conference. We're also planning to bring you our notes on the Pronovix Blog in January 2021!


The API The Docs podcast series brings advice from behind open and closed developer portals, ideas on what new learnings you can aim for, and recent experiments from the field of API documentation. We've released 6 interviews so far and 2 more are coming in 2020.


We're super excited about this year's collaboration with the APIdays team as APIdays Paris has been one of the biggest API related gatherings of the API space. This year we're going to meet in the Hopin tool, and your track hosts will be Laura Vass, Mark Winberry & Kristof Van Tomme.…
