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.

Who are the members of the Jury in 2019?


We're thrilled to announce that Anne Gentle, Lukas Rosenstock and Bob Watson confirmed to form the DevPortal Awards Jury in 2019.

They're going to select the winners in 11 categories and they'll also decide on the Best Overall Developer Portal Jury prize.

Public voting starts next month!


Public voting in the Best Overall category starts in August and this year you'll need to register with your email address before voting for your favourite portal. Voting might take a bit longer than last year, but we hope we'll create a fair(er) contest by introducing this 2-step process.

Good luck to the contestants!
