His interest in JSON Schema stems from a history of work projects that included data definition, code generation, and configuration management. As JSON emerged as a commonly used data representation, and its use in messaging and data storage increased, the value of applying data definition and validation to JSON work activities drove initial interest. Having found JSON Schema to have high practical value, this work emerged.
