The Conference for API Documentation and Developer Portals

Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, we're turning API The Docs Portland & API The Docs Cologne-Bonn into a series of virtual events. Each edition will have 2-3 invited speakers, who will focus on a specific angle of API documentation and developer portals. The editions are scheduled until the end of June and they give a great opportunity to learn about the latest best practices and new trends of the field.

Our first ever podcast is out!

We're launching a podcast series today as a new element in our recap porfolio. The podcasts will cover the Q&A of the Virtual Series, and later on we might add an additional flavour to them.

Recaps & recordings

We're continuously publishing the slides, video recordings and talk summaries on the recap page of the Virtual Series. Our plan is to add new content to it on Thursdays, the week after the events.
