Description

API the Docs Paris 2018

One-day conference about API documentation and developer portals


API the Docs is a free event for tech writers, API developers, product owners and developer evangelists who embrace documentation as a crucial aspect of a great developer experience. We believe the conference is a great opportunity to share and discuss the latest best practices, strategies and new trends relevant to API documentation.

Our last event on December 4, 2017 that we organized in Amsterdam in collaboration with ABN AMRO was a great success. So we’ve decided to do four events this year, one in Paris in collaboration with Mozilla, two in North America, and another one in London.

API the Docs was inspired by the Write the Docs conferences, but is a standalone operation. Initiated by Pronovix, the main organiser of also this edition, it aims to allow as much people as possible to learn about API documentation. That is why we organize our events for free, in multiple locations around the world.

The next API the Docs event in Europe will take place on April 24 in Paris. We are super excited to organize this edition in collaboration with Mozilla, at their amazing community space!

Planned topics:

  • Editorial workflows & writing formats and how they can be used in API teams (Git based workflows, documentation formats like Markdown, ReStructuredText, AsciiDoc, Docbook, DITA, etc.)

  • Portal technologies (Static HTML pages vs CMSs, different solutions)

  • API portal strategy & tactics (positioning, viral loops, personas, evangelism)

  • Top portal showcases

  • Developer portal features, components, and products (SDKs, development sandboxes, API quality signals, etc.)

  • API Specification languages (Swagger, RAML, Blueprint, etc.)

  • API design and governance

  • Developer experience design, gamification, and innersourcing as tools to improve API quality behind the firewall
