platformOS wins Best Onboarding at DevPortal Awards 2021

We are excited to announce that the platformOS Developer Portal has won the Best Onboarding category at the DevPortal Awards 2021. The DevPortal Awards showcases and celebrates innovative developer portals and the teams behind them. It gives publicity and appreciation to developer portals that deliver the best solutions available today, and that push the boundaries of what are believed to be the key components of a developer portal into the future.  It’s a peer-reviewed award where jury members are invited and assigned to categories according to their expertise. 

According to the jury members, platformOS' getting started tutorials have sufficient detail to be instructive while also helping users become familiar with the products. A prominent Try Now button leads to a clear page with video instruction and well-explained options for getting started. The signup is simple and straightforward, with a well-defined user journey. Example apps allow for working in code at a variety of levels.

We would like to thank all members of our community who contributed to our documentation providing feedback, requests, edits, new content, or participating in user experience research. We will keep revalidating and improving our documentation just like we have been doing since the beginning. It feels great to take a moment to appreciate the journey so far and get recognition for our work.
