Come help define the metric of community growth/maturity/decline in BOF

By | News

Come help define the metric of community growth/maturity/decline in BOF: Community Health Analytics for Open Source on Monday Sept. 11 5:40pm at Open Source Summit North America. This BoF is for those interested in community health and sustainability. An ongoing challenge for open source communities and participating organizations is to objectively understand issues related to community health. Community leaders, open source foundations, and organizations are putting an effort into understanding healthy and sustainable communities but are lacking cohesive and common measures and tools to assess such issues. The Linux Foundation Community Health Analytics for Open Source Software (CHAOSS) project will organize the BoF with the goal to advance the new project and further the development of objective health metrics. In particular, we will spend the time exploring how members understand and describe the particular composite metric of community growth/maturity/decline.

There will be a continuation of this session on Tuesday, Sept. 11 from 2-4pm for those wanting to continue the discussion.   Details will be announced at the Monday BOF.
