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.
Bitergia team at FOSDEM
As we were telling you a few weeks ago, we were joining FOSDEM, not only as attendees but as speakers.
We would like to share our experience, giving you details about our talks…
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.
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: Cauldron.io
We are more than happy with the results
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.
According to Linux Foundation:
The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is an exclusive, invitation-only conference where the world’s thought leaders in open source software and collaborative development convene to share best practices and learn how to manage the largest shared technology investments of our time.
And Bitergia is one of the privileged attendees with two talks during the summit:
So, let’s meet in Lake Tahoe by the end of March!
And last, but not least, remember that we will be exhibiting in OSCON and you can get a discount using BITERGIA25 code… Don’t miss the chance to visit us there!
Another OpenStack Summit is comming, and as usual, we have submitted some talks based on the analytics work done on its development data. Now it’s time for the community to vote for them:
Both of them are going to be a good chance to see the possibilities that our Open Development Analytics platform offers for Open Source projects and foundations in terms of transparency and perfomance metrics.
Meanwhile, you can play with the early preview dashboard published for FOSDEM’16 as proof of concept of our future dashboards:
