Google Summer of Code Intern Venu Vardhan Reddy Tekula

By Mentorship Blog

Yes, I got selected for the Google Summer of Code 2020 program. 🥳

The first time I heard about this program was during my first year. Later, I tried applying in my second and third year but I couldn’t make it through. This is my final year and was probably my last chance to apply. I didn’t take it easy this time. I collected the feedback and analyzed the mistakes I did in the previous years. I started off early, contributing and preparing a proposal for the project.

Outreachy Intern Ore-Aruwaji Tola

By Mentorship Blog

My name is Ore-Aruwaji Tola, this is an article that gives a break down of how I got selected as an Outreachy Intern working for CHAOSS

I am a staunch advocate of Open source software because it changed everything in my life. I improved my coding skills through Free and Open Source Software. I am always intrigued about Open source software because the source code is made available to people who would like to view, inspect the code, copy it, learn from it, alter it and share it.

Community Stories – VMware

By Blog Post

As an active CHAOSS community member, one of the first things I did while I was building the strategy was to start gathering metrics so that I could better understand the health of our current open source projects while also understanding where we could improve.

I believe this status quo is hurting the adoption of GrimoireLab software and CHAOSS metrics. This blog post is about how to make it easier for anyone to start using GrimoireLab.

VMware Open Source

By Blog Post

Back in October, my colleague John Hawley and I reflected on our visit to last year’s U.S. CHAOSScon where we gave a talk on “The Pains and Tribulations of Finding Data.” At the end of that post, we mentioned learning more at the conference about Grimoire Lab’s Perceval tool for tracking data from multiple open source projects on a single dashboard. That opportunity helped me develop the work that was the subject of a talk I gave at the recent CHAOSScon Europe 2019.

GrimoireLab – Graal

By Blog Post

Currently, GrimoireLab allows to produce analytics with data extracted from more than 30 tools related with contributing to Open Source development such as version control systems, issue trackers and forums. Despite the large set of metrics available in GrimoireLab, none of them relies on information extracted from source code, thus limiting the end-users to benefit of a wider spectrum of software development data.

Contributing to the GMD Working Group

By Blog Post

The GMD Working Group is one of the CHAOSS working groups, tasked with defining useful metrics relevant for the analysis of software development projects from the point of view of
GMD (growth-maturity-decline). It also works in the areas of risk and value. For all of them, we’re intending to follow the same process to produce metrics, similar to what other CHAOSS working groups are doing. This post describes this process, that we have recently
completed for the first metric (many others should follow during the next weeks).
