Developer eXperience (DX) is crucial for the success of an API. That is why API teams build developer portals where the team can publish their API reference. This is where most teams fail. A great developer experience requires more than reference docs. In this talk Kristof Van Tomme will describe the upstream and downstream developer journey, and introduce the different documentation components you need to create a great DX.
