This year was a big one for both Axway and our developer community. As we say goodbye to a decade of development innovation that brought mobile to the forefront of our digital experience, we say hello to a brand new look and feel for our online developer community. The new and improved Developer Blog marks the beginning of a new chapter for application development, and serves as your one-stop resource for Axway product updates, tutorials, tech tips, developer insights, industry news, community spotlights and much more as we head into the uncharted waters of a new decade.

As 2019 draws to a close, it’s time not only for some well-earned rest, but reflection, too. Kickstart your inspiration for next year, and for the next era of development, with our most popular content from the year now past. Happy Holidays!
