The New API Academy Website

The new API Academy website features better content classification, improved navigability, and a brand-new look and feel.

The API Academy recently celebrated its 6th anniversary. To commemorate this occasion--or maybe it was just coincidence?--we launched our new website on July 3. As proponents of usability in API Design, we wanted to make sure the user experience is more positive on our new site. Hopefully you'll appreciate the changes we've made in classifying content, associating related material, and providing useful affordances on all of our content.

Here are some highlights...

  • Our Podcast channel gets its own page. Expect more episodes of the API Academy Podcast--led by team member Ronnie Mitra--to be coming out soon!
  • Team member Erik Wilde has introduced the Standards Daily page, a place where you can stay up to date on new and emerging API-related standards. Check out the page and follow Standards Daily on Twitter!
  • We have a new logo! See if you can spot the subliminal API and microservice references in the new icon.
  • There are now many ways to subscribe to the API Academy. You can sign up for our newsletters, follow our feeds, or just contact us directly via email. There are lots of links throughout the site.

We would like to thank the team at Mike Martin Designs for designing and developing the new site. We would also like to say a special thanks to Alex Jones, Jeremy Axmacher and the CA team for their work on the infrastructure. Last but not least, special credit goes to our own Amy Vujanich who oversaw the delivery of the website from ideation to deployment.

Have a look around and let us know what you think!
