Best Onboarding

What does good onboarding look like?


Good onboarding in a developer portal gets started with transparent steps to registration and granting access that show what the APIs are about, how they work, how developers can start integrating, and where they can find additional resources. It is important to give just the right amount of information as this is the first impression your users experience.  Build confidence and inspiration with your onboarding experience.
