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:
We are living in the remote work era and for software development management it has become key to have transparent means to monitor the work of their teams. This post shows how to set up GrimoireLab to check not only the stability and throughput of software development teams, but also the collaboration between team members and with other teams in large or distributed organizations.
Bitergia has migrated Kibiter to ES/Kibana versión 6.8.6 that will improve Bitergia Analytics platform to add new functionalities, bug fixes, and security improvements from upstream. Kibiter is a custom soft fork of Kibana which powers GrimoireLab Panels with metrics & data visualizations. This post summarises major improvements
Few months ago Mozilla launched Mozilla & the Rebel Alliance , an interactive network representation of Mozilla’s contributor communities (also available as PDF file). This report has a lot of insights for anyone involved in developer community building, such as DevRel.
There will be companies that emerge stronger from the global coronavirus pandemic crisis because they adapt to changes and invest: We are living in the remote collaboration era, in which more companies are becoming software, and open source software is eating the world. To come out stronger, companies need to learn to work in distributed remote teams and specifically in open source, adapt to the changes in industry by breaking down silos and improving collaboration, and apply data-driven management to their (open source) software development.
Some weeks ago we introduced Open Source Development resistance against COVID-19 where we analyzed how a pandemic could impact Open Source development on projects such as the Linux Kernel or Kubernetes. This time, Bitergia runs the analysis on a third project: Hyperledger
A new version of GrimoireLab is out. This post shows the major improvements from the latest GrimoireLab toolkit releases.
GrimoireLab is a 100% open source project maintained mainly by Bitergia developers and part of CHAOSS Software projects, one of The Linux Foundation projects. GrimoireLab’s main goal is to provide a software development analytics toolkit to analyze software development projects.
Last week we introduced Open Source Development resistance against COVID-19 discussion where we analyzed how a pandemic could impact Open Source development. This time, Bitergia runs the analysis on a second project: Kubernetes

During the last months, COVID-19 (i.e., Coronavirus) has grown into a pandemic. Countermeasures to stop spreading the virus are having a huge impact on the economy in many countries. What about the software industry and open source? Would it be possible to check, somehow, the impact the virus has on open source software development? This post shows an initial analysis of how a pandemic can impact open source development.
