On Monday, June 20th, our colleague Jesús will be in Berlin for OPNFV Design Summit to present The Quantitative State of OPNFV.[Update]: slides available, Jun, 20th, 2016.
OPNFV is one of the open source projects hosted by Linux Foundation and we have been working for them for almost a year, deploying and maintaining a Metrics Grimoire based Bitergia Dashbobard and detailed quarterly reports. But, meanwhile, we have been developing the new GrimoireLab toolkit, so we have some new things to show in Berlin for our OPNFV friends…
OPNFV MetricsGrimoire and GrimoireLab based dashboards
We have built a GrimoireLab based dashboard for OPNFV, but with some extra goodies!
Community managers spend their time in numerous community activities related with his/her main role: to get people to talk and contribute, react to the community managed, keep people engaged, etc. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) should be set for each community based on its goals. It’s part of the job to elaborate reports with multiple metrics on community health for example. But, measuring should be an effective task.
Keeping this in mind, I’d like to share with you 5 reasons about why community managers or any other professional related with software development should have a dashboard that provides all the data about the community or project that she/he manages:
Bitergia gathers data from almost the entirety of the set of tools associated with collaborative software development, providing useful information, metrics and insights for different profiles.
It seems that the first person that needs this kind of information is the community manager. But, there are other profiles that can get advantage of tracking projects and understanding the details to answer specific questions.
Which are other profiles that could be interested in metrics, and the information they can get from that data?
The EclipseCon starts today in France. And for this special occasion we are landing a new version of the open analytics platform for Eclipse today. This is intended to be used for community purposes, but also for engineering teams and for those curious about how this community performs over time and nowadays. Luis Cañas will talk about this during the Conference, do not miss his talk!
The entry point for the dashboard is the Overview page. There a summary of each of the available data sources is displayed together with some filters that help to understand the evolution and current state of the activity and the community of Eclipse.
