In this episode, we talk to Stella Crowhurst, Content Strategy Director at ‎Worldpay.

We discuss:

* How Worldpay reduced complexity in the developer experience by combining multiple properties in a single portal.

* How Worldpay uses Lean methods to develop documentation within an Agile development environment. 

* The new tool Worldpay is building in-house that allows to display the API documentation, reference and a sandbox all in one page so that developers can access all the information they need on one screen, speeding up the integration process.

* The way the technical writers work as an API content team in collaboration with the internal development teams.
