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.
