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 recognizes and celebrates the best solutions in a number of categories - what we believe to be the key components of a developer portal.

DevPortal Awards 2021


This year we're planning to announce the nomination categories based on the dimensions of the Maturity Model for Developer Portals. We've been thinking a lot about how we could incorporate its dimensions. Developer experience is well represented in the already existing categories, however, we still need to find out how operational maturity and business alignment could be better recognized and applauded. We're aiming to announce the details in April.

"When it comes to strategic decision making with regards to a developer portal, there are 3 dimensions that you can use to ascertain at what level of maturity you should operate: Operational maturityDeveloper eXperience, and Business alignment."
