Felipe (and others)

A little off-topic but hope my question will make sense.

So I am a designer by trade (interface design, apps, data viz) and have
been lurking on this mailing-list to get a sense of where robotics might be
headed by reading what you guys have been writing about.

I am also trying to see if there is anywhere I might be able to build a
product/service that helps the robotics industry using my skills as a

I have some ideas around visual programming languages and automatization
and robotics fleet management and just saw Nagios.

My question is.

Is there any tools like Nagios or related that would interest you if it was
catered more towards robotics and automation?

I am asking because Nagios looks powerful but it also looks like it could
use much more user friendly design.

Let me know if this is something you have any opinions/wishes for.

Thanks and sorry again for the off-topic post.
