Dropbox Developer Community, and the new DBX Platform Super User Program!

There are over 500,000 developers on the DBX Platform who have built integrations with Dropbox. With so many creative and experienced engineers developing on our platform, we’re investing in enabling the Dropbox Developer Community to connect, ideate, create, and get support among peers through meetups and online forums.

Meetups

Dropbox Developer Meetups bring users of the DBX Platform together in person to connect with the Dropbox team, hear what’s new from Dropbox, and learn from one another. The events in San Francisco and New York City are recapped on the blog if you’re interested in learning more. We plan to continue hosting these events in our offices around the world. Please let us know where you think we should come next by filling out this form, and stay tuned to the blog and @dropboxapi Twitter for meetup announcements.

Developers & API Forum

The Developers and API forum is a space where you can ask questions, get advice, brainstorm ideas, make connections, and get inspired. You can head directly to the API Support & Feedback page within the forum to get technical support from the Dropbox team and community about specific API issues, as well as to provide product feedback and feature requests to us. For everything else, from catching up on Dropbox’s latest API announcements, to sharing code samples, to brainstorming your start up ideas, to getting tips on how to best build your app, head to the newly added General Discussion page. We encourage all our developers to engage in the conversations and contribute content that will help other members of the community. Read more about the Dropbox Developer Community on the forum. 

DBX Platform Super User Program

As part of this continued investment in community, we are excited to launch our new DBX Platform Super User Program. We are looking for our most passionate API users to share their expertise with the Dropbox Developer Community. This program will provide benefits to those community members who go above and beyond by regularly contributing high-value content on the Developers and API forum such as code samples, details on projects they have completed, answers to other member questions, and/or guides with tips & tricks they have learned along the way. 

In exchange for contributing to the Dropbox Developer Community, the DBX Platform Super Users will get perks and incentives that grow over time with the level of their investment like additional Dropbox space, swag, specialized training, early access content, and direct access to the Dropbox team. 

All the details about the DBX Platform Super User Program, including the expectations and benefits, are outlined in the forum announcement. If you have any feedback or questions about the program, feel free to reply to the forum post. 

To apply to be a DBX Platform Super User, please fill out this form. The Dropbox team will review all applications and follow up with any additional questions. 

Whether it’s at an upcoming meetup or on the forum, we hope to meet you soon!
