These are curated as part of my daily work to understand what is happening across the space, and I regularly use them to track on what has occurred overtime, and include them in my guides, whitepapers, and other outputs.

Messaging Tooling

These are the open source tooling that I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space.

My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.
