On Thursday, November 15, 2018, Uber hosted its first open source event, Uber Open Summit 2018 for developers and community leaders. For this special occasion, Bitergia created a report to highlight Uber Open Source community engagement. Like many open source program offices, Uber open source had questions regarding project activity and performance, two important factors for decision making. Here are some examples of those questions:
One of the main points you think about when trying to implement digital transformation in financial services is software (Software is eating the labor market!).

A developer relations (AKA DevRel) builds relationships with the developer community and is the linchpin between a company and its community.

SortingHat is an open source tool that simplifies the management of project member identities and their related information such as gender, country and organization enrollments. It is one of the key components of GrimoireLab, daily used in Bitergia to track and visualize project members information.
As some of you know, Bitergia became an active member of InnerSource Commons with the aim to help companies to implement open source practices within organizations and how to use the right InnerSource metrics for their projects.
Bitergia keeps growing as a software development analytics firm and nowadays, we are helping a wide variety of clients (project & community managers, engineering & development teams, HR managers, business analysts, etc.). Obviously, they’re not looking for the same goals in their projects, neither for the same metrics. So, how can Bitergia Analytics dashboards be customized for their specific needs?
