Open Source Leadership Summit 2018, here we go!

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!


FOSDEM 2018 is coming!

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!

Grimoirecon North America 2017 next May in Austin

grimoirecon North America. Tickets available!
Grimoirecon North America

Using the context of OSCON next May in Austin, we will celebrate our GrimoireCon North America.

We want to take the advantage of having lot of our customers there to show them our newest updates for our metrics and dashboard, such as having Slack integration. We will show also use cases and practical workshops for developers, community managers, project managers and for anyone interested on monitoring open source!

Full agenda will be published during next days, but we can announce today that Ben Lloyd will join us as speaker.

His talk will show how he uses quantitative metrics generated with GrimoireLab to evaluate the strategic value of open source projects and their communities, and it will cover how Samsung is planning to use this information to inform its overall strategy. How effective are internal open source engineering teams at getting code upstream? Does the community incorporate new features and fix bugs and security flaws adequately to meet the needs of the company? What companies and organizations exert the most influence over the community? Is the overall health of the community adequate to meet the needs of the company? How diverse is the developer ecosystem and are there ideal candidates for hire? We’re seeking to answer these questions and more.!

Tickets are available now! Get your early bird before the 20th of April.


Let’s meet in Lake Tahoe!

Once again, Bitergia has been invited to participate in the Linux Foundation Open Source Leadership Summit (previously known as Linux Foundation Collaborative Summit). This time, we have new things to show, based in the work we are doing currently for The Linux Foundation and several of its collaborative projects such OPNFV, CNCF, OCI, Xen and Cloud Foundry (details to be published soon!).

Our colleagues Daniel Izquierdo and Jesus M. González Barahona will be participating in the following talks:

If you are around, don’t miss the chance to meet our colleagues, join our talks and discuss about how Bitergia might help you!

Meanwhile, we have started working on ideas for next GrimoireCon and OSCON US 2017. Stay tuned or contact us for more information.

Lots of news during May

We have been working very hard to have everything ready for May (new website, more data sources supported in our technlogy stack, and a little surprise). Our team was presenting a lot of that in two main conferences during May:

  • Community Leadership Summit (AKA: CLS), where we participated in several sessions related with community metrics for Open Source and Inner Sourcing initiatives and we managed the FLOSS Community Metrics meeting.
  • OSCON, where we had our first time ever booth there, and a talk about code review process metrics

Our main target for the week was to present an update of our technology stack (GrimoireLab), our partnership program and a new try yourself demo for analyzing GitHub organizations or personal public repositories:

We are more than happy with the results

Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit recap

In just two words, it has been IN-TENSE!

Flights have been like nightmares because cancelations, connections lost, rebooks, etc. We have spent almost the same time travelling than in the summit itself. But despite that, summit time has been a huge opportunity to share our expertise about Open Development Analytics with the people involved in Open Source and Inner Sourcing development management in many projects and companies.

On Tuesday after a set of interesting meetings, we have a presentation about Open Development Analytics, and how it highlights interesting aspects of an Open Source (and even Inner Sourcing) project, tracks relevant patterns, and assists in the early identification of problems.
