April Developer Newsletter

Hello developers and Fintech fans!

Here we are for the April 2022 Developer’s Newsletter and what has been happening at Adyen: blogs, conferences and new releases. 

Did you know?

We have updated all our Sample Applications to provide you with a one-click deployment on Gitpod. After the one-off setup of the Adyen keys you can run the application to perform the various payments as well as changing live the source code.

Help us!

Have you worked with Adyen’s API Libraries? We need your feedback! We are working on improving our API libraries and are trying to understand whether they meet our users expectations and needs. The ask? A 45 min call with a few questions about your experience. We offer a 50$ amazon gift card in return. Interested? Reach out to Vivienne.klaassens@adyen.com

What’s happening

Management API
Recently we have released the first version of the Management API, a set of APIs designed to support the automation of administration and configuration workflows. You can read “Automate your Admin workflows with the new Management API” to discover what you can do and the benefits.

Revamp of the API credentials screens
Our Developer Experience team has been busy with a redesign of the “API credentials” screens, the section of the Customer Area where merchants define the configuration and roles to access the Adyen backend. Read what and how has changed in this blog post.

Dev Rel Saloon

We have hosted the second gathering of the DevRel Salon series here at Adyen HQ and it was again a great event with a passionate audience including friends from OVH, Miro and RedHat.

Many thanks to @LostinBrittany and @AurelieVache for the inspiring talk.
