The Conference for API Documentation and Developer Portals

API The Docs switched its format to virtual in April 2020 and seven virtual conferences have been organized since then. Having experimented with many setups and tools, the team continues the format from September 2020 with live talks on a bi-weekly basis.

Season #1 touched upon a wide range of topics, from API strategy to dev doc trends and user journey iterations. Season #2 continues in a similar manner; putting various industry practices in focus. It welcomes every story from banking, fin tech, logistics, location technology, telecommunication, media, automotive, etc. segments of the API economy. Call for Proposals is open from 10th June till 31st July.
