Redesigned API Developer Center

Today we’re delighted to release a completely redesigned API Developer Center at developer.xero.com.

API Developer Centre

With the growth in the API, and the inclusion of the additional Payroll API, it was time to build a new home. We’ve taken all the good aspects of the previous site, restructured our home page, documentation and getting started guide, and implemented a new main navigation menu that gets you to the important stuff right away.

Developer partners
We also have a new home for our developer partner program. Here you will find not just information on our various developer partner programs such as Add-on and Xero Developer, but also some fantastic testimonials from some of our partners on the ecosystem we have built together:

What next?
We’ll further integrate our developer community and application management sites into the new interface in the coming months for an even more seamless developer experience.

Your input
To build an API that developers can pick up and develop against quickly and easily, we need to have excellent documentation and code samples. We’ve been flattered by feedback so far on this, but we know there is more to do.

Let us know in the comments if you have ideas on what we can do better.
