* API-driven Internal Dashboard -- The devops.json and Gutsy open source projects

Many large systems are composed of smaller, API-driven services. In these service oriented architectures (SOA), developers work in small subteams consuming and producing abstractions. While APIs enhance development efficiency in the normal work-flow, failure cases are often non-standardized, with little to no information provided for operational and development issues such as downtime or developer on-boarding. Implementing internal devops.json endpoints, combined with the Gutsy DevOps Dashboard, significantly improves the cost and quality of outcomes to operational and development problems by enabling information discovery of people and infrastructure.
