CHAOSS stands for Community Health Analytics Open Source Software and recently at CHAOSSCon EU in Brussels, we spoke briefly to Brian Proffitt, one of the CHAOSS Board members and also Senior Principal Community Architect for Open Source and Standards team at Red Hat. He tells us why it’s important for metrics to tell a story, why previous metrics may not have been as impartial as people would want, and why increased mailing list traffic could indicate a potential community crisis!

ApacheCon Seville 2016 – Diversity, When Not Playing Life on Easy – Nick Burch

Diversity, When Not Playing Life on Easy – Nick Burch

Diversity and inclusion are becoming hot topics within our open source communities and industry, but for those of us “playing life on easy”, the subject and impact can be harder to “get”.

Like many people who used to play life on easy, I’ve had some blind spots around diversity and inclusion. I only discovered these through working on projects, communities and support at the ASF, and by moving to a new country!

Now it is my mission to help others see the light, learn for themselves, and through that build better open source communities. I’ll be sharing what I learnt, giving resources, and specific takeaway actions.

If You Build It, They Won’t Come – Ruth Suehle

Good code isn’t enough for a successful open source project. First of all, only you know how to use what you’ve made. Maybe it’s time for a little UI and UX help? At the very least some documentation! Next, how is anyone else going to find what you’ve created? And that’s only the beginning. Ruth Suehle, manager of Red Hat’s Open Source and Standards community leadership team, will take you through examples of the best and the worst, from projects large and small, to help you see what you need beyond your code to build a successful open source project and community.
