Somerville — February 16, 2021 —

SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and quality tools, is the winner of a 2021 DEVIES Award being presented during the all-virtual DeveloperWeek 2021, taking place on February 17-19, 2021. The company’s integrated API development platform, SwaggerHub, earned the award for excellence as an API development tool. 

“Developer tools and solutions are continuing to grow in their importance to the global technology industry,” said Geoff Domoracki, CEO of DevNetwork, producer of DeveloperWeek and the 2021 DEVIES Awards. “SmartBear is a great example of the new era of products and services allowing developers and engineers to have a greater impact on a company's bottom line and overall efficiency.” 

SwaggerHub is built on the OpenAPI Specification (OAS), formerly Swagger, enabling teams to drive consistency and discipline across the API development workflow. SwaggerHub acts as a single source of truth to enable faster, standardized API design and centralized, secure collaboration and documentation. 

“The success of digital transformation initiatives and its impact on the global economy is directly tied to the quality of APIs,” said Calvin Fudge, Director of Product Marketing at SmartBear. “By leveraging SwaggerHub, the world’s leading enterprises can scale their API delivery with consistent standards to better support the digital devices and services we have come to depend on. Thank you to the panel of judges for recognizing SwaggerHub for its excellence in API development.” 

The 9th annual DEVIES Awards recognize excellence in developer tools, products, and technology across 20+ categories. Products are judged on technical innovation, adoption, and reception in the developer technology industry and by the developer community. The 2021 DEVIES Awards received hundreds of nominations, and winners were selected based on three criteria: 1) attracting notable attention and awareness in the software industry, 2) general regard and adoption by the developer, engineering, and IT community, and 3) being a technical leader in its sector for innovation. 

SmartBear will be presented the award at the 2021 DEVIES virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, February 18, 2021. DeveloperWeek is the world’s largest developer and engineering conference and expo with 8,000+ participants. For more information, go to:
