What's API The Docs?

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

The Tokyo edition

The first ever API The Docs event in Asia is organized at Pivotal Labs (Roppongi Hills, Mori Tower). We're very excited to have this edition in Japan and the whole team is grateful to the co-roganizers, namely Caven Cade Mitchell from Rakuten and Atsushi Nakatsugawa from Moongift!
