Project Vision

Redesign the Developer Community platform to enhance its usability and appeal to both end user developers and content providers. The goals have been to increase engagement, get developers the information they need in a more efficient fashion, to encourage interaction and to facilitate the addition of a number of new features and content.

The project included UX and UI design.

““Killer” UI for the developer community site that did not require full site rewrite but that a) allows API providers to want to put their content on the community and b) enables developers to get their jobs done using the site.”

- Saori F., Project Manager.

- Make what is important stand out
