On Thursday, November 15, 2018, Uber hosted its first open source event, Uber Open Summit 2018 for developers and community leaders. For this special occasion, Bitergia created a report to highlight Uber Open Source community engagement. Like many open source program offices, Uber open source had questions regarding project activity and performance, two important factors for decision making. Here are some examples of those questions:
If you are a digital data-driven company, you will probably rely on big data to track information such as industry trends, social media activity or sales data to get patterns and insights that help you in your decision making. Thus, if you care that much about these activities, and having on mind that software is eating the labor market, why not caring about your software and software development processes?

SortingHat is an open source tool that simplifies the management of project member identities and their related information such as gender, country and organization enrollments. It is one of the key components of GrimoireLab, daily used in Bitergia to track and visualize project members information.
As some of you know, Bitergia became an active member of InnerSource Commons with the aim to help companies to implement open source practices within organizations and how to use the right InnerSource metrics for their projects.
Bitergia keeps growing as a software development analytics firm and nowadays, we are helping a wide variety of clients (project & community managers, engineering & development teams, HR managers, business analysts, etc.). Obviously, they’re not looking for the same goals in their projects, neither for the same metrics. So, how can Bitergia Analytics dashboards be customized for their specific needs?
We are back from CHAOSSCon and the OSSummit North America (and still recovering from the jet-lag). It’s been a very intense and interesting week, with several activities planned in advance, and more being added on the fly!
King Arthur, or simply Arthur, is an open source tool designed to schedule Perceval executions at scale through distributed Redis queues. It also provides support to store the data obtained to an ElasticSearch database, thus giving the possibility to connect the results with analysis and/or visualizations tools, such as the Bitergia analytics dashboards.
