About the El Dorado Project

Here we collect various mentions of the work we've done observing software through the metadata produced throughout its creation and operation.

Organizational Growth and responding to change.

Aggregating Structure in a graph database.

Sharing our Work as members of a community.

Our work here feels a lot like test-driven development felt twenty years ago. New technology made tdd practical then. So too with our work today.

Like tdd, this work pays back in scale. That is, expect integration of your first few sources to be no more rewarding than your first few tests. The reward comes later when a sense of knowing replaces concern for the unknowns that compound with growth.
