What stood out in 2023?

Here are some of the conclusions of the Jury Panel:

  • providing a cohesive experience is critical
  • there is better infrastructure for trying out APIs and more mature integration into authentication
  • the ability to interact with an API of any kind directly in the documentation is valuable, and really contributes to the learning experience
  • many portals incorporate user experience research and design; the customer is recognized as a part of the design process
  • gamification is always a nice addition

Explore the thoughts of the Jury Panel in depth and learn from their insights to bring your developer portal to the next level!

What are the DevPortal Awards?

The DevPortal Awards were established to spotlight innovative leaders and their exceptional developer portals in the API space. This event celebrates the efforts behind creating developer portals that not only cater to developers but also align with business needs and are easily maintainable.

The DevPortal Awards aim to recognize today’s best solutions and push the boundaries of what we consider to be the essential components of tomorrow’s developer portals.

What's new in 2024

In our 7th season, we're continuing to celebrate innovation and acknowledge emerging trends. This year, we're introducing two new categories, rethinking some existing ones, and saying goodbye to a few favourites.

Best AI-augmented User Experience in a Developer Portal is a new category for developer portals that are already engaged in AI-related projects. Another new category, Best Unified Enterprise Developer Portal, spotlights portals that were created to serve as the one unified platform for the extensive API portfolios of large and complex corporations.

In the Best Accessible Multimodal Documentation in a Developer Portal category, we celebrate developer portals that create and convey meaning through the combination of more than one mode for the purpose of better accessibility. With the Best Reference Documentation Beyond REST APIs, we're looking for portals that stand out in guiding non-REST API integration journeys. In the Best Served Integration Solutions in a Developer Portal category, we are looking to award the best patterns for how a portal can include solutions that solve the same problem in a different way.

While the Best Visual Design, Best Community Support and Outreach, and Best New DX Innovation were popular categories in the past, we've decided to focus on other (new) aspects in 2024.
