  3. GSyC/LibreSoft Research group at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos About 20

    persons, including students Focus on FLOSS (free, libre, open source software) One of the main research lines: Understanding FLOSS development Quantitative, empirical approach Based on data retrieved from FLOSS development repositories Participating in several R&D projects http://libresoft.es Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona (Bitergia) Analyzing development metrics Akademy-es 2012 3 / 23
  4. Alert: and international R&D project Active support and real-time coordination

    based on event processing in FLOSS development Academia, industry and FLOSS communities (KDE is involved) 2011-2013 Receiving information from FLOSS development repositories presenting with useful, updated information to developers http://alert-project.eu/ Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona (Bitergia) Analyzing development metrics Akademy-es 2012 4 / 23
  5. Bitergia: an spin-off Company starting operations in June 2012 Building

    on the experience of LibreSoft Offering professional products and services Focused on: Metrics about software developent (including community metrics) Specialized support for development forges (including metrics for projects) http://bitergia.com Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona (Bitergia) Analyzing development metrics Akademy-es 2012 5 / 23

  21. In summary FLOSS development repositories have a wealth of information

    Their analysis is potentially interested to any stakeholder Getting the data out of the repository is not that difficult... ...but analysis may be We’re interested in deep analysis We’re interested in working with developers Which aspects of your project would you like to know? Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona (Bitergia) Analyzing development metrics Akademy-es 2012 21 / 23
  22. Help wanted: validation of bug seeding detection Validation of methodologies

    for detecting bug seeding Which lines introduced a bug? Several techniques... ...which need real developers for validation How to validate? Let a real developer determine if a certain code is involved in seeding a bug or not Potential benefits: Learn from your errors (personally, or as a project) Performance metrics Bug seeding evolution Bug seeding patterns Bug seeding bad smells If you would want to collaborate in this, let me know!

  23. This is the end Have you learned something useful? [I

    would love to know what interested you the most] [...and the least] Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona (Bitergia) Analyzing development metrics Akademy-es 2012 23 / 23
