After reading Barack Obama's Presidential directive that every Federal Government agency should have an API, following Executive Order 13571, and part of the Whitehouse CIO's strategy, entitled "Digital Government: Building a 21st Century Platform to Better Serve the American People"--I'm excited about the potential for our government to change and evolve.

Then in 2013 I went to work in D.C. as a Presidential Innovation Fellow, with the White House and GSA, placed at the Department of Veterans Affairs. I learned a lot while in D.C., something that will always be reflected in my work around APIs and government.

The goal around my research into APIs and federal government is to shed a light on the important work coming out of the agencies, while also stimulating the next round of growth. If you know of work at a federal agency that isn't listed, please let me know.'
