Creating a lasting relationship with developers is about making a connection and then nurturing it. They don’t want tee shirts (most of them have plenty of cool ones already). Broadly, they want access to a great product (your API); a business model that rewards them; a community in which to collaborate and help each other; and an overall great experience.
When targeting developers with your digital strategy, a once-size-fits-all approach is seldom successful. In this webcast, Apigee's Sam Ramji and Michael Rasalan of Evans Data Corp. discuss why understanding the size and makeup of the developer community is critical to your adoption strategy.
Apigee Edge's Advanced API Services dashboard provides complete visibility into all aspects of your app development, including user management, app management, performance monitoring, and reporting. This integrated approach couples the key capabilities you need to build engaging experiences with the convenience of accessing it through a single dashboard.
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Nick Pudar, the director of General Motors' developer ecosystem, during I ♥ APIs 2013 to discuss how the digital, connected world is transforming the auto industry. We've just published the video of our conversation.

Walgreens, the largest drugstore chain in the United States, has created a great video to educate developers about what they might gain from building apps on the company’s QuickPrints open API. QuickPrints lets mobile users print photos directly from their devices and pick them up in Walgreens stores.
Our calendar of free training sessions and workshops is set for November and December, and we're excited to kick it off in San Francisco this week (11/5–11/6) at I ♥ APIs, Apigee’s first user and industry conference.
