Leveraging Open Source Market Intelligence to Effectively Inform Open Source Strategy - Jose Miguel Parrella, Microsoft
The open source industry landscape changes rapidly, fueled by massive adoption, sprawling technology base and stakeholder expansion. Conventional approaches to MI/CI are rapidly becoming insufficient to inform and drive open source strategy, leaving organizations with inadequate signals to act such as installed base data insights or limited competitive comparisons. In this session, Jose Miguel Parrella will share how Microsoft leverages the open source industry market intelligence (which, in turn, is mostly open source in nature) to inform multiple stakeholders and drive forward Azure's open source go-to-market strategy. This includes signal sources, processes, prioritization and communication, and a summary of the underlying trends in the cloud space for 2017.

New Node.js, Who Dis?: It Takes a Global Village to Raise a Community - Tracy Hinds, Node.js Foundation

The power of asking for help and making space(or getting barriers out of the way) for those who have the energy and enthusiasm to help, that’s a power of Node.js and its community. That’s the story and fellowship we are working to protect as the ecosystem grows. Node.js is 7 years old now. Tracy Hinds will share the history of the Node.js community, its legacy, how flawed we are in our efforts to grow a high velocity OSS project, and how every facet of the project is stepping up in order to make these changes lessons for other OSS communities.

Community Dashboards for Linux Foundation Projects: From Open to Inner Source Metrics - Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona & Daniel Izquierdo, Bitergia

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.

The Evolution of Chat: Growing Your Community with Twitter - Jason Hibbets, Red Hat
Do you want more engaged and active followers as part of your open source community? Twitter chats can be a great way to drive engagement--if you're talking about the right topics with the right people. A small team at Red Hat planned and executed a 7-week sprint that involved community discussions using Twitter chats. Find out the techniques we used for building engagement, the best practices we discovered, some of our failures, and how we measured success. We continued this effort by hosting monthly Twitter chats.

This session include a live demonstration of running a Twitter chat. Knowledge of Twitter and Twitter terminology is helpful.

Using Community Metrics to Evaluate the Health of Your Open Source Projects - Ray Paik, The Linux Foundation
Open source projects today involve hundreds or even thousands of developers around the world working on dozens of sub-projects. In this session, Ray will discuss how Open Platform for NFV Project (OPNFV) has been using the community dashboard (https://opnfv.biterg.io/) to track developers’ contribution both in terms of code and community support. Ray will also discuss how OPNFV is starting to use the dashboard data to track individual sub-projects’ health and future plans for OPNFV community metrics.
