Applaud the Best DevPortals

DevPortal Awards brings together the API community to recognize, celebrate and learn from the world’s greatest developer portals and their API documentation.

About DevPortal Awards

What is DevPortal Awards?


A handful of leaders in the API space are developing DX innovations for their API products and developer portals, but these efforts are not coordinated, and it is difficult to see clear trends in the API docs space. We want to create an opportunity to celebrate the best developer portals and their API documentation components, so that the API industry as a whole can accelerate its own learning. The DevPortal Awards will recognize and celebrate the best solutions in a number of categories - what we believe to be the key components of a developer portal.

DevPortal Awards 2020


Due to COVID-19, the timeline of this year's DevPortal Awards is still in progress. Our original plan was to start the Nomination phase on 1st May, but given the current situation we need to review our schedule and find an iteration that suits everyone best.

We're hoping to come up with a final plan by the end of May. Thank you for your understanding!
