Landing the new Eclipse Open Analytics Dashboard

The EclipseCon starts today in France. And for this special occasion we are landing a new version of the open analytics platform for Eclipse today. This is intended to be used for community purposes, but also for engineering teams and for those curious about how this community performs over time and nowadays. Luis Cañas will talk about this during the Conference, do not miss his talk!

The entry point for the dashboard is the Overview page. There a summary of each of the available data sources is displayed together with some filters that help to understand the evolution and current state of the activity and the community of Eclipse.

The dashboard shows activity in the four main type of repositories with information about software development (git, Gerrit, Bugzilla and mailing lists) for all the projects in Eclipse. You can browse the specifics of all of them (click on the button right of “Eclipse Foundation” on the top bar), and select between a view of the whole history of the community, or restrict it to the last five years (unfold the option by clicking on “All history”, again in the top bar).

But before commenting some more details, let’s visit the future: a simple PoC of the upcoming GrimoireLab-based dashboards, showing Eclipse data as of two days ago for dashboard for git data and dashboard for Gerrit data.

The information in these new dashboards will be much more actionable, with the visitor being able of filtering by just clicking on charts and tables. These dashboards are still early demos, which although show real data, still need a lot of polishing of the user interface. For a more complete (but still proof-of-concept) demo, have a look at the one we presented during FOSDEM.

Free / Libre Open Source Software Community Metrics meeting recap

After the Community Leadership Summit, our next big event in Portland has been the FLOSS Community Metrics meeting, organized by us together with Puppet Labs, that hosted the meeting in their offices. Special thanks to Dawn Foster and Kara Sowles for all their help and support.

The room was crowded, with people from organizations like Eclipse Foundation, Red Hat, Google, Twitter, PayPal, Open Source Initiative, LibreOffice, Kaltura, Cloudera, etc. There has been a lot of interesting topics and talks, and almost everything is already available in the 2014’s edition website

Let’s try to brief how it was…

James Falker, from Liferay, talking about bullshit metrics like downloads, etc.
