New Year, New Portal

Lori Fraleigh

Senior Director, Developer Relations

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2020 and the Year of the Rat.

Today, we're proud to launch a brand new developer portal. This is more than just a facelift. We've listened to your feedback and made content easier to find. We've refreshed our UI with a cleaner, more modern interface that works across desktop and mobile. And best of all, much of the content has been updated.

There's dedicated areas for developers and designers (Build and Design) to help you narrow in on what you want to do. Once you're ready to submit, there's a dedicated Distribute section to get you on the path to revenue. For those of you who are Galaxy Store Badge users, you can access your dashboard and other promotion services on the Galaxy Store page.

Read the blog for the latest tech tips and advice and check out where you can meet us, both live and online, in our events section.

As part of this launch, we have also launched new developer forums that utilize the popular Discourse open-source software. The new forums support capabilities like a feature request module where you can submit an idea for a new feature for our SDKs or tools. You can also show your support by voting for other ideas and provide comments on how it can benefit the developer community.

Forum participants can also earn badges as they interact and engage with other developers. Over the next few months, the existing community forums will initially be marked read-only and then will eventually be sunset.

Have feedback on any of these new launches? Please share your thoughts - what you love, what we can still improve, and what you'd love to see come next.
