Nomination categories

Best API reference documentation

Devportals that improve on API reference documentation and how they integrate with “try it out”, and sandbox functionality: the heart of developer experience.

Best decision maker documentation

Organizations will only use an API if they understand the value of it, that is why it is important to increase the perceived value of an API through appropriate and clear business descriptions.

Best onboarding

Devportals that clearly show what their APIs are about, how they work, how developers can start integrating and where they can find resources.
