Metrics are fun, but which ones really matter?

A session at Fossetcon 2014

Saturday 13th September, 2014

1:40pm to 2:20pm (EST)

There is no shortage of algorithms, techniques, and software to produce virtually any metric one may desire. Too often, projects concentrate on vanity metrics that may make the project look good, or the CEO happy, but hides the true nature of the community and how it is evolving. True value is only realized when metrics are chosen that most closely align with a project's goals.

In this session, learn which goals and resulting metrics we chose to track and respond to in the Liferay project (a large, open source portal project), why they were (and continue to be) important, how they are produced, and what we are doing with them.
