Metrics: When One Size Doesn't Fit All

There are different ways to assess an open source project’s success, but measurable metrics (like pull requests and contributions) typically play some role. One of the challenges Uber has faced involves maintaining many open source projects of different sizes and maturity levels. It’s not possible to create one universal metrics baseline for all projects and gauge individual project metrics against it. In this presentation, Carsten Jacobsen, Open Source Developer Advocate at Uber, and Manrique Lopez, CEO at Bitergia, talk about how different metrics are captured and evaluated for different open source projects at Uber, and how domain knowledge and analytics expertise, when working together, play a key role in providing insights in a compelling way.
