Building Community with Developer Love

API Strategy & Practice Conference 2015

Some of the first things developer facing companies focus on is great documentation, code samples and sample projects, education through tutorials, how-to’s, and blog posts. If, as an API company, you aren’t, you might want to reconsider some of your decisions. These are all great things and very much needed, but sometimes there’s one thing missing from their focus… developer love! Developer love can help you grow your community, and in-turn, your platform.
