From Art to Science: Community Development in a Data-driven World

The community development efforts in open source ecosystems is increasing its complexity. This is due to the growth of the open source industrial interest and how organizations invest resources in those projects. This talk will focus CNCF ecosystem and how the application of a data-driven methodology and specifically the network relationship analysis and visualizations are bringing new valuable insights, enabling better open source community management and helping foster more open and transparent cross-community collaborations. This talk includes reseach and analysis on CNCF cross-community collaboration and will show how by applying more data-driven approach given CNCF's growth,interdependencies, increasing complexity, and multiple commercial interests can help foster stronger, healthier open source communities.
