Over the past few years, several community dashboards have been deployed for Linux Foundation projects, such as the one for OPNFV (https://opnfv.biterg.io/), or a new dashboard for LF projects (http://linuxfoundation.biterg.io), which will be presented in this talk for the first time. The talk will briefly explain these dashboards, how to use and interpret them, and will showcase some interesting facts raised by the data they provide.
In addition, inner source is becoming a potential solution to scale agile-based companies and an alternative way of introducing the basic concepts of open source communities idiosyncrasy into large software development teams. This second part of the talk will provide a view of how success is measured in open source communities as lessons learned from the open source world and how this can be applied when inner-sourcing.
In both cases, inner source and open source, the tooling and infrastructure is pretty similar, while goals are different. This talk will stress the point of understanding what and how to measure in those different contexts.
