We’ve hosted Dropbox Developer Meetups in San Francisco, New York City, and Seattle where we’ve met hundreds of members of our U.S. based community. Now, it’s time to take the show on the road internationally. We announced a new engineering office in Tel Aviv earlier this year, so it seemed like the perfect place to start our global tour.
On Monday, August 27, we are hosting a Dropbox Dev Day in our shiny, new Tel Aviv office. The day will be split up into two major sections–a “Getting Started” workshop and a happy hour meetup.
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.
Developers building for Dropbox Business can now use the new team events API to power their workflow and analytic applications.
Dropbox Business provides an activity log that records all of the key events taken on a team. An admin on a Business team can use the events in the Admin Console to audit and monitor activity within the team. We have re-written the corresponding API from the ground-up with over 300 events available. The new v2 API (team_log/get_events) improves upon its v1 predecessor with a rich schema, new attributes,
Customers turn to Dropbox Business because they want a single, central place to store their team’s content. Today, individual users can share content amongst themselves and admins can publish content into select folders. But, we know that a lot of teams would value a coherent, shared collaborative space.
We are beginning to roll out the release of a team-centric Dropbox Business model that introduces a shared collaborative space called Team Spaces. Dropbox Business accounts with Team Spaces will have unified shared space for all team members, where users can add and remove access for individuals or groups anywhere in the filesystem.
Since launching our new DBX Platform, we’ve been working to improve your developer experience. As we continue revamping our developer programs, we’re also making a few updates to our Terms and Conditions.
Back in September, we announced our new DBX Platform, a unified suite of APIs and tools for developers. The updates we shared were just the beginning of the improvements we’re working on for our community. We’re quickly ramping up our efforts and hiring several new team members across product, engineering, design, and programs.
As we plan for the future, we’d love to hear how you’re using the DBX Platform today and what we can do to improve your experience. Your feedback is incredibly important to us as we plan our roadmap.
