We manage all aspects of a successful developer ecosystem.
A Collective of Experts in API Platform Strategy
With decades of experience in API Design, Architecture and Developer Relations
Before a computer interacts with any API, a human is responsible for discovering, designing, and implementing it.
We help businesses build their APIs by focusing on what matters – experiences and technology that delight developers.
Strategy & Planning: Establish a full plan to implement a successful platform.
We do more than design solid APIs. We help you navigate through the most important steps in fostering a successful developer program.
We teach the process of designing a great API, preparing developer outreach initiatives, and structuring your team to manage an effective platform.
Design: APIs, Developer Sites, and more
On a tactical level, our experts can design solid and easy-to-understand APIs to fit you and your customer needs. Furthermore, we can create supportive API documentation, and design full developer sites and portals.
We also work with your team to determine what technology frameworks work best within your existing structure.
Development: Full-stack Engineering
Our team has led the strategy, design, and execution of effective developer programs. We can support your engineering team in the implementation of APIs and developer sites, covering all aspects of the Developer Experience:
– Defining your OpenAPI schema
– Implementing your Developer Portal
– Implementing your API Documentation
– Implementing your API Gateway and infrastructure
We have a network of experienced API platform engineers to provide support.
Our team members have serves as expert witnesses in IP litigation cases. When code is copied, APIs often provide useful evidence to prove or disprove IP theft.
From writing tutorials, to blogging, to bookwriting, our team has extensive experience – both as consultants and for our own thought-leadership.
