Short description / Topic

From the Website: “API The Docs is an event for tech writers, API developers, product owners and developer evangelists who embrace documentation as a crucial aspect of a great developer experience. The conference is a great opportunity to share and discuss the latest best practices, strategies and new trends relevant to API documentation and developer portals!”

I want to be a Conference Buddy

I’m attending API the Docs in London in November. It’s my third time at one of their events (I was in Amsterdam and Paris already, in Paris I was also a speaker). I found API the Docs to be a generally open and very diverse community. I’d be happy to help a newcomer feel welcome!

About me

I’m part freelance software developer, who also does API design and documentation projects, and part startup co-founder. As I mostly work alone or in tiny teams, I enjoy going to events to meet the broader tribe. If you want to know more about me, just ask :slight_smile:


Hi. Nice to meet a veteran attendee. I’m a newbie to the conference - coming in from Israel. Looking forward to it!

Hello Jackie, nice to meet you, too!
I saw you posted on Slack, too, as have a few others.
f you want to meet up tonight before the conference maybe we can plan something there.


Hi Lukas, Hi Jackie,

I’m curious, did you find each other?



No, unfortunately we didn’t, but I managed to make a few contacts of my own there as well as found at least one familiar face in the crowd.


Ok, that’s a pity, but at least you had a good time :blush:

Do you feel there would have been anything making it easier to find each other? I noticed that I don’t check the forum regular when the conference day has finally come and think that may be a problem to solve.
