Ably wins Best API Debut award

We’re excited to announce that Ably has won the 2020 API Award in the Best API Debut category at the API World conference and expo.

The 2020 API Awards recognize excellence in developer products and tools; and celebrate the incredible technical innovation, adoption, and reception in the API and Microservices industries, as well as the use by a global developer community.

The awards ceremony will occur during API World 2020 Virtual (27-29 October 2020).  In its 9th year with over 4000 attendees, it is produced by DevNetwork and is the world’s largest API and microservices conference & expo — and the largest event for the API economy.

  • attracting notable attention and awareness in the API industry;
  • general regard and use by the developer & engineering community; and
