Red Hat's Open Source Program Office is working on an exciting opportunity: using multiple data-gathering tools to semantically and quantitatively analyze data across the open source ecosystem to discover relevant information about open source projects' health and industry interest. Specifically, our OSPO uses tools to conduct machine-learning surveys of communities to help Red Hat foster healthier communities as well as make informed data-driven business decisions based on what's happening in open source now. In this presentation, Cali Dolfi and Brian Proffitt will outline the value of community data and the tools Red Hat's OSPO uses to mine that data and create richer, more meaningful ways to make decisions about a community's direction and progress. A demo will highlight areas of impact we currently see around event messaging and subsequent activity in Git-based repositories, measure the activity levels of certain interesting technologies, and even discover new communities that may have been previously "under the radar."
