Meet us at FOSDEM!

We are so excited about starting the new year with our contribution and participation at FOSDEM 2017.

Fosdem 2017

FOSDEM is the strongest reference event for developers and geeks to meet and know the hottest incoming tech topics since 17 years ago.

In 2000, Raphael Bauduin, a Linux fan from Belgium, decided to organize a small event for Open Source developers. He named it ‘Open Source Developers European Meeting’ (OSDEM). From the second edition OSDEM became FOSDEM and every year host more than 5000 developers and Open Source geeks.

FOSDEM is our natural environment. We have joined it in a lots of editions and we are very proud to come again this year as speakers. We are also going to set up a stand for chatting with all our friends with special gifts for our community.

These will be our contributions to FOSDEM 2017:

Check our Kibana-based development dashboards!

While we’re developing and testing our new toolchain for producing Kibana-based software development dashboards, we’re producing a good collection of them, with real data from real projects.

Akademy 2014

Pretty late writing about the Akademy, but I really wanted to share my experience with this community.

First of all and as a disclaimer, I already knew some members of the community, so this was not my first time with them. I have always enjoyed my time with them and get pretty useful feedback.

This visit was related to the KDE devleopment dashboard that Bitergia prepared in collaboration with some KDE developers.

Microsoft openness in a simple chart

Last week I took part as master of ceremonies on an special event for FLOSS developers at .. Microsoft Spain offices! The idea for the meeting was to explore the different FLOSS technologies already supported by Microsoft Azure with speakers from different companies and communities like MongoDB, PhoneGap/Cordova, etc.

The event is part of the new openness strategy that is driving the company. But, I have thought about how open is really this movement? Of course, they are releasing a lot of code as Open Source, but is the company contributing to other FLOSS projects beyond their own ones? And by suprise, the answer has come from our own dashboards.

Let’s meet in 2014!!

2013 is almost over and it has been an intense year starting up Bitergia. We have worked hard and we would like to thank our customers for trusting us. It’s time to face 2014 with energy!

We continue improving our free / open source tools and services, starting by presenting our latest developments in Fosdem 2014 (two talks approved, stay tuned!), and working hard to help free / open source software communities success by the use of metrics and software development analyses as key factor.

Happy 2014!!

Open World Forum 2013

During early October days, we’ve been in Paris for the Open World Conference 2013 (AKA OWF 2013) as first stop of our October’s Tour, and it has been a quite interesting meeting.

OWF location

First of all, OWF is not an Open Source freaks event, and business is one of the event’s target, so there were many well suited people talking about opportunities and so on. Of course, you can see people doing freak things…

Some companies missed it, but most of the big ones where there somehow: Red Hat, Openstack, Suse, Citrix… and even Debian, that is not a company, but it is a reference in the Open Source world. I’ve had the chance to talk with some old friends and to meet new ones. So, it has been a good networking event, but some kind of reception/dinner/party? would helped.

On Friday, we were invited to talk about the metrics and analysis we do in Bitergia and how it helps on Open Source projects for the Open Source in practice track. It’s been great sharing the desk with people like:
