NOAA's Virtual Lab (VLab) provides a host of services to help facilitate collaboration between users within NOAA and external partners outside of NOAA. The services provided within VLab will be discussed. The services includes a web portal promoting collaboration through content sharing and organization. VLab users utilize the development services to facilitate software development activities, such as project management, issue tracking, software version control, software code review, and automated builds of software. These software tools promote software best practices and enable VLab developers to quickly and efficiently develop software. VLab is used by all of the NOAA line offices, is a mission critical tool within the National Weather Service and is even defined as a required part of the on-boarding process for setting up services within the Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP).
