Your Company Cares About Open Source Sustainability. But Are You Measuring Your Contributions?


You will incent the behavior that you measure. If you want your company to be involved in sustaining the open source projects they consume, you need to start by measuring contributions into those projects.

Forgot about the open source projects that your company is trying to grow. How many of your engineers are contributing to open source projects you consume? Are those engineers only opening issues, or are they contributing code? How can you measure and improve contributor velocity to the open source projects on which you depend? In this session, we will look at how we measured contributions to open source projects we depend on, and the effect our initiatives had on growing contributions into those projects.

Your company cares about open source sustainability, even if they don't know what it means. This session will look at the initiatives we ran to promote sustainable contributions by our engineers.
