This talks is presenting the state of developer portals in the banking world. Because of PSD2 regulation, all EU banks are obliged to open APIs in a forced innovation context.

And you can see that in their developer portals and developer programs!

The talk will also reveal the 5 top features Developers and Startup wants in a Banking developer portal, preview of the 2018 report market study.
