Webinar May 31 & June 1 – Developer Relations and your Company’s APIs

It used to be that only a very few specialized software companies cared at all about developers – and usually because they were selling programming tools or platforms. Now every company needs to be connected and to work interactively with their clients, their partners, their suppliers, and their customers and to do that they publish APIs. Twenty percent more developers now report publishing APIs for external use than six months ago, for a total of 9.2 million. A recent preliminary report on “The Impact of APIs on Firm Performance” by Boston University Questrom School of Business reports that “API adoption leads to a 12.7 percent increase in market capitalization”.

“Today companies need to be interconnected and to take advantage new innovations. This often means they need to publish APIs and once you publish an API you have a platform. Once you have a platform you need developers, and that means you need a program to support them”, said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. “We see the proliferation of developer programs throughout all places and industries.”

In this webinar, David gives an overview of how a Developer Relations program participates with an engineering team to inform, educate, and support community members for the lifetime of an API. During the webinar David covers preparations for the release of an APIs, when and if to open up new APIs, types of technical content required for an API, versioning impacts for APIs, and how to help your community members get ready for deprecating and shutting down APIs.
