Education Dept Launches Online Hub for Developer Resources

The Education Department has unveiled its first developer hub designed to serve as a dedicated space to centralize developer resources, document open government efforts and utilize the department’s data and code.

ED created the usedgov.github.io site with the General Services Administration‘s 18F unit in an effort to organize open source projects and application programming interfaces as well as consolidate news articles on how the department works to increase federal education data access, according to a blog post published Tuesday.

The online developer hub was developed as an extension to ED’s official account on Github and as part of the InformED open data initiative.

ED also seeks to establish a collaborative relationship with the developer community and expand the department’s  catalog of APIs and open source components through gathering of customer feedback.
