    why OpenStack Summit, 8th Nov, 2013 AsiaWorld Expo, Hong Kong
  2. 2/10 19/03/14 @bitergia Activity Board Basic and advanced development

    metrics – Basic: • Current, aggregated and evolutionary metrics
  3. 3/10 19/03/14 @bitergia Activity Board Basic and advanced development

    metrics – Advanced: • Structure of the community (demography) • Actionable dashboard: do it yourself!
  4. 4/10 19/03/14 @bitergia Free / Open Source Software Toolset

    *Grimoire: set of tools for – Data gatherging MetricsGrimoire, to get data from: – SCM (Source Code Management) – SCR (Source Code Review) – ITS (Issue Ticketing System) – MLS (Mailing List Stats), IRC – Data analisys VizGrimoireR, statistical analisys based on R – Data visualization VizGrimoireJS, HTML5 visualization
  5. 5/10 19/03/14 @bitergia Future of the Activity Board •

    OpenStack software development open data – Already available databases and JSON files – REST API /Other options • Extensibility by third parties – with proper documentation • In depth analysis of the community to improve transparency • What do you want to have?
  6. 6/10 19/03/14 @bitergia Future of the Activity Board More

    ideas around: • Time to fix, time to review, performance indexes, etc. • Comparison between projects, to help in the development of specific policies if needed (e.g.: may core projects have special attention/better resources?) • Looking for bottlenecks (great job done by Russel with Gerrit!) • Mentors metric (great idea by Stackalytics guys!) • Meetups measurements
