Developer experience is an extension of general User Experience, which emphasizes the developer, and their experiences working your API. A good API developer experience goes beyond technical writing. It is about providing all the right resources that help your end consumers successfully integrate and work with your API.

A well designed developer experience has API documentation at the center of it.
