Last week I was invited to participate in the Open Source Weekends meetup, so I set up a quick GrimoireLab demo for them. It was a surprise, part of my talk about the history of Bitergia. You can see the slides online:
The InnerSource Spain community had its first meeting, and we are already planning next steps. Let’s start by briefing first meeting outcomes.
The adoption of Python notebooks to perform data analysis has considerably increased, becoming a de-facto standard within data scientists communities.
Notebooks are interactive human-readable documents, which contain the analysis description and the results (e.g, figures, tables) as well as the Python code used to perform data analysis. Thus, notebooks help scientists to both keep track of the results of their work, and make it easy to share the code with others.
Inspired by this blog post about the most useful open source python libraries for data analytics in 2017, where in addition of libraries description and category, the author gave insights about how popular these libraries are, using metrics such as number of commits and contributors extracted mainly from their home repository in Github, we are going to run some analysis from different perspectives.
One more year, we attended to our traditional visit to FOSDEM and celebrated our classic GrimoireCon, which this year has become into CHAOSSCon! We want to share with you our experience with a recap from CHAOSSCon and also from the talks some of us gave at FOSDEM.
Bitergia is providing services to many open source related companies and organizations, but one of the core aims has been always to provide something useful for the communities of those companies and organizations. So, how could we involve these communities in our customer care services?
First of all, let’s check what we are giving to our customers:
Once again, we will be at the Open Source Leadership Summit, the invitational event organized by The Linux Foundation. This year, the event is happening in Sonoma (we’ll miss the last years snow in Squaw Creek) and we will be presenting the state of GrimoireLab to our friends there.
Daniel Izquierdo will be participating toghether with Nicole Huesman and Matt Germonprez in a session about Diversity & Inclusion, one particular metric supported by the CHAOSS project. Matt, Daniel, and Nicole will discuss work that has been done to-date with respect to the open source Diversity & Inclusion reports at OpenStack, the software used to generate these reports, the relationship between these reports and the CHAOSS project, and methods by which other open source projects could generate reports of their own.
But before the OSLS, on Monday (today), we will have a couple of meetings and internal workshops in Mozilla and Twitter Inc. headquarters in San Francisco.
If you are around, let’s meet and talk about software development analytics, CHAOSS and/or GrimoireLab!
Once again, Bitergia will be in FOSDEM, and we are working hard to have some good stuff to share with you during the following days in Brussels.
First of all, we used to organize a meeting on Friday for those people interested in free, open source software development analytics. It started as the FLOSS Community Metrics Meeting. And then, we moved it to GrimoireCon to focus it more around GrimoireLab. This year, we have that meeting again, on Friday. But, this time… it’s bigger!
Our week in LA for the Open Source Summit North America was not only about CHAOSS.
We spent the Tuesday’s morning with some of our customers and friends, in a GrimoireLab dashboards training session.
The Linux Foundation Open Source Summit North America 2017 is over, and we are already on the road for the next conference! But less brief some activities related with CHAOSS project during the last Open Source Summit in LA:
The CHAOSS board met later on Monday, and there was a couple of presentations during the day:
