The US Office of Personnel Management's Developer Center serves students and junior developers, as well as seasoned professionals. Here, you can learn how to access and use the data formats that power some of OPM's web applications, or jump straight to the code. We also make available open data sets featuring raw Federal Government information maintained by OPM. We encourage you to use our APIs to build your own web applications. We also encourage you to contact us about your projects so that we may feature web applications built off of our APIs and open data. If you are unsure of where to begin, try starting out by reviewing our documentation.
