Best New DX Innovation

Taking care of Developer Experience: How do you Enable & Engage your users?


Developer experience (DX) is the inverse of API friction. In the eyes of your users, the value of your API(s) will grow if they experience as few obstacles as possible from start to finish. Great DX can enhance how people perceive your API portal: the experience starts from registration requirements over information architecture solutions, testing options and support resources to community life and maintaining an app. Taking care of DX is important throughout the whole developer journey, be it through simple solutions, creative innovations, or well executed technologies.
