SendBird wins a 2018 DEVIES Award for Innovation in API Infrastructure
January 22, 2018
We’re both honored and excited to announce that SendBird received a 2018 DEVIES Award for innovation in API Infrastructure. Since we strive daily to be the world’s No. 1 chat API, we’re thrilled to receive this endorsement from the folks at Developer Week.
The 2018 DEVIES Awards received hundreds of nominations, and the DeveloperWeek advisory board selected our product based on three criteria: developer technologies that have (1) attracted press and attention, (2) are well-regarded by the developer community, and (3) are leaders in their sector for innovation.
We’ve always focused on delivering the highest value to our customers, whether it’s through our feature rich product, customer support or our custom enterprise solutions. But behind those features, we’ve invested heavily in our infrastructure. And there’s a great reason behind it: to make SendBird the most scalable and reliable chat API in the world so you can always focus on what matters most to your business.
Developer Week 2018 and the DEVIES
Developer Week is, well, all about developers. And we like that. It highlights, in one aspect at least, how a developer’s confidence in a technology can really reflect and bolster the strength of a business’s core product.
"Developers are becoming key influencers in their companies because the technologies they use will matter more and more to their business's operations,” said Geoff Domoracki, Founder of DeveloperWeek, “SendBird is a great example of a new era of technologies that are empowering developers to have a greater impact on products and IT.”
But whether you’re a developer, product manager, or working on the business side, we make sure our API technology empowers you to integrate conversation into your business’s product.
Thank you, again, to our customers and the SendBird team
This award is thanks to the customers, businesses and developers we’ve worked with over the years.
And we also have our talented team of developers to thank for the award: our CTO Harry Kim, Jay Yun and Jin Ku, our regional Head’s of Engineering, and the whole engineering team; Jed, Victor, Jacob, James, Craig, David, Andrew, Tyler, Jeff, and Young.
The 2018 DEVIES is the world’s largest DevTech Awards event, taking place during DeveloperWeek 2018, the world’s largest developer expo and conference series with over 8,000 attendees. Developer Week is right in SendBird’s backyard this year at the Oakland Convention Center.
