We’re so excited this morning to kick off DBX, our first developer conference. Fort Mason is buzzing with energy from our incredible community of developers, designers, and partners. Back in 2007, when it was just the two of us coding in an apartment, we never imagined that six years later there’d be over 175 million people using Dropbox and more than a billion files synced each day.
We’re proud that Dropbox has become the home for millions of people’s most important stuff. So we want to be sure that stuff is always available,
Once upon a time, we built Dropbox to make it easy to have your stuff anywhere, and share it with others. But after using it a bit, many of us thought: “Wouldn’t it be great if [insert app name] could do that too?”
That’s why we started building Dropbox’s APIs (application-programming interfaces) for developers, which let Dropbox speak and interact with some of your favorite services and apps.
Dropbox’s APIs started with humble beginnings. At first, our Core API let users get to their stuff in Dropbox from other apps they were using.
