What's New in the Developer Center
Hey all! We’d like to give you a quick update on what has changed and added to the Developer Center in the recent weeks.
Look & feel
As you might have noticed, we gave our landing page a fresh coat of paint and included an overview of Mobilefirst Foundation and it’s benefits. And you can check out our features page to read more about what you can do with the product.
In addition, the navigation sidebar in the documentation section is now more visually pleasing.
And speaking of product documentation, a few months ago we’ve announced that the full product documentation (for MobileFirst Foundation 8.0) is offered right here And now you can also find our API reference here!
Coming soon, translated editions of the product documentation will go live in Japanese, Simplified Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), Korean and more to come.

Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
