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:
Company goals around using, consuming, contributing to and maintaining open source software (OSS) projects are usually related to market positioning, required upstream features development, and talent attraction or retention. Well-organized OSS efforts are managed by an Open Source Programs Office (OSPO).
To achieve these goals and respond to increasingly specific requests from the OSS community and ecosystems, OSPO teams need to organize and combine a number of data sources, analyze information faster, and deliver more insightful analysis from several channels. This post explains the benefits of having a single source of truth and some ideas OSPOs can apply to achieve it.Continue reading “Why OSPO teams need a single source of truth (and how to achieve it)”
In 2010, the first version of OpenStack was released. During the years, big tech companies such as IBM, Red Hat or VMware have started to support OpenStack, and its popularity hasn’t stopped increasing since then. Indeed, OpenStack has been an important reference within open source cloud ecosystems, but also, for Bitergia. Do you want to know more about it? Keep reading!
The LF AI Foundation hosts and supports open source projects within the artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning space. This post shows how the different LF AI projects software development activity evolved over time and the impact that The Linux Foundation brought to them.
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
