The original Ohana implementation of Open Referral runs on Heroku, and we are looking to develop additional implentations that will deploy and operate via the Heroku cloud platform, and even potentially connect with SalesForce along the way.
This is my work in partnership with Open Referral to move forward the Human Services Data Specification (HSDS), in conjunction with a definition for the Human Services Data API (HSDA). I've dedicated a portion of my time as the API Evangelist to help move forward the conversation about how we store, share, publish, and collaborate around human services data.
I began this work with Greg Bloom (@greggish) of Open Referral back in 2015 and 2016, and signed on as the technical lead by 2017. I'm invested in the projects success, and will invest as much time as I possibly can helping contribute to the data schema, API definition, tooling, and storytelling. I feel the project reflects the API potential, helping make our world work better for humans, not just something that tech startups do.
