Vonage, a leading provider of business cloud communications, has been awarded “Best Developer Relations Program Overall” for Nexmo, the Vonage API Platform (Nexmo) at the inaugural DevRel Awards. Nexmo has also been honored by the DevPortal Awards for “Best Onboarding,” “Best Support and Maintenance,” and “Best Reference Documentation.”
Organized by the developer relations consultant firm Hoopy, the DevRel awards were created as part of the DevRelCon hosted in London to honor the best of developer relations, developer experience, and developer community, highlighting those teams and individuals making the biggest difference in the industry. The DevPortal Awards were announced as part of the corresponding API the Docs event and focused on recognizing outstanding developer user experiences.
Nexmo provides APIs and SDKs that enable developers to embed contextual, programmable communications via messaging, chat, social media, video, voice, and more into mobile apps, websites and business systems. Leveraging Nexmo, businesses can rapidly and easily innovate the way they engage with their customers in real time, anywhere in the world, through their preferred channels to create deeper relationships and improve customer loyalty.
With an ever-growing platform of nearly 700,000 registered developers, Nexmo APIs integrate emerging technology including bots, artificial intelligence, and deep data analysis into new and existing communications solutions. The Nexmo developer community tears down the barriers to entry so that any developer can reach a global audience from day one.
“It’s fantastic to be recognized by our peers. We are where we are today thanks to our fellow developer relations professionals and the developer communities we’ve been welcomed into and that we’ve had the honor to support over the years,” said Phil Leggetter, Director of Developer Relations for Nexmo. “Thank you to the developer relations community and to everybody at Vonage for the continued support we see every day.”
Both the DevRel Award and DevPortal Award applications were reviewed by independent panels of developer relations experts from across the tech world. Submissions were evaluated based on how the program or individual worked to achieve the goals of building awareness, adoption, and community among software developers, and to provide the best possible developer experience.
