We have some exciting news! The Analytics Dashboards are being upgraded to our latest Kibiter release based on Kibana 6.1.0. This new version will allow our customers to enjoy new visualizations, new metrics and a new security layer. Everything 100% open source software.
Nowadays, more and more companies such as PayPal, Bosch or Autodesk are internally implementing inner source programs. Inner source differs from classic open source development process by remaining within the view and control of a single organization and offers many advantages in terms of efficiency and effectiveness.
In previous posts, we talked about Inner source characteristics and advantages such as InnerSourcing: the development model of the future.
Once again, Bitergia will be at OSCON, held this time in Portland, at Oregon convention center. OSCON, one of the biggest open source conventions in USA, has been ground zero of the open source movement and nowadays continues to be the catalyst for innovation among companies.
Open source projects issues deal with community health and activity: how to get people to contribute or how to keep people engaged are common activities for community managers. Thus, key Performance Indicators (KPIs) should be set for each community based on those goals.
Join Bitergia at Open Expo Europe 2018, the largest professional event within Free, Libre, Open Source Software and Open world economy sector in Spain. This year, OpenExpo18 will take place on the 6th and 7th of June in Madrid.
We are all prepared for this upcoming event, are you? Don’t miss a thing and be updated about all our activity. First of all, our Bitergians’ talks at OpenExpo18:
The adoption of Python notebooks to perform data analysis has considerably increased, becoming a de-facto standard within data scientists communities. But, which Python libraries are used on them?
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.

We’ve just uploaded to pypi a new collection of GrimoireLab Python packages suitable for direct installation with pip. Please, upgrade your virtual environments!!!
These packages allow for a very easy use of most GrimoireLab tools. For example, assuming you have ElasticSearch and Kibana installed locally (or available as cloud services), producing a fairly complete software development dashboard from scratch for a git project is just a matter of running a few commands.
North Bridge and Black Duck published last January their 2016 Future of Open Source Survey Results with a lot of interesting conclusions. Maybe the biggest one it’s that Open Source continue gaining force inside the IT business, but its management is chaotic because the lack of process.
Most common problems related on the survey were:
- Nearly 50% of companies have not formal policy and process for selecting and approving open source code.
- One of the major problems of that is security. 47% don’t have a formal process in place to track the code and only 19% of vulnerabilities are detected and fixed automatically.
- Nearly 1/3 has no process for identifying tracking or solving known open source vulnerabilities.
- Over 1/2 companies has no responsible to identify and tracking remediation.
