<<I am trying to convince some developers that an
apostrophe is for use for a contraction or to show
possession. They are of the impression that the
plural form of acronyms also needs an apostrophe.>>

Per the Gregg Reference Manual:

"Capital letters and abbreviations ending with capital letters are
pluralized by adding s alone."
