Writing code today often means interacting with API of many products. For me it means the possibility to integrate existing tools or create new functions.
Sometimes it is just a matter to create a small utility.
Asset management, documentation and monitoring are important parts of any IT Ops team but at the same time they are boring, repetitive, error prone.
Last summer I spent some time investigating the possibility to integrate open source projects I like to create a Minimum Viable Product for asset management/monitoring and learn something during the process.
