Let’s find the developer portal that provides the best overall experience for its users! Every nominee automatically runs for the Best Overall Developer Portal. Two portals will be selected in the end - one by the community and one by the Awards Jury.
Devportals that do an exceptional job in creating trust towards their APIs by clearly, yet innovatively indicating their availability and reliability. Portals that make it easy to maintain an API integration through great release notes and other maintenance support.
Devportals with creative solutions or initiatives to show developers that their work is appreciated. Portals with great community sections where developers can share knowledge and build connections.
Devportals that improve on API reference documentation and how they integrate with “try it out”, and sandbox functionality: the heart of developer experience.
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.
Devportals that clearly show what their APIs are about, how they work, how developers can start integrating and where they can find resources.
Devportals that not only have innovative business models but also found an innovative way to present them. E.g. API pricing model innovations, new ways to monetise APIs and how these are explained on the portal.
Devportals that lead the way in boosting developer experience for their developers as a whole or for specific subgroups of developers (e.g. more/less advanced, different communities,...) through DX innovations or well executed existing technologies.
Devportals that found the perfect harmony of usability, content and aesthetics and present every aspect of the APIs in a well-structured, understandable way. Developer portals that inspire trust through superior production quality.
Devportals that take the initiative to make their APIs and documentation accessible to all possible users, regardless of disability type or severity of impairment.
Devportals that implement devices or content strategies to address topics like cultural diversity, differences in language capabilities, local legal requirements and regional expectations.
