Json Résumé is a community driven open source initiative to create a JSON based standard for résumés. There is no reason why there can't be a common standard for writing a résumé that can be extended with an ecosystem of open source tools. This project will attempt to;
We have researched the alternative standards, and they are a lot more mature but are lacking a modern and friendly ecosystem that empower individuals.
Our goal is to empower developers in every way possible, which means we will stick to a more casual development approach.

We feel that JSON Schema is now mature enough for writing usable schematics. YAML doesn't throughly offer schematic standards yet(though you can easily convert your résumé between YAML and JSON anyway).
We will generally do 2 year cycles of revisions to the specification. Though upon release the lifecycle will be short for 3 months whilst last minute revisions are made to the standard
Everything on the jsonresume.org domain name is opened source under a MIT license. This is meant to be a community effort to better the JSON résumé ecosystem.
We have built tools for you to initialize and publish your own JSON Resume.Get Started!
The latest published draft is unversioned and is currently wanting feedback. We want to release a version 0.0.0 in late July.
