In the age of (seemingly) endless amounts of data, we can have databases full of points on a single community, but without taking in the nuances of how open source communities function, we are left with numbers, not insight. With a healthy amount of skepticism, we can dive into the data science workflow on what insights we want to gain versus the past problems of being limited by the data itself. From here, community members can actually make path changes and advocate for themselves at a larger scale in the language of the new age: data analysis.

In this presentation, Cali Dolfi, data scientist at Red Hat, will look at visualizations and metrics from the perspective of the individual community and from the ever-connected open source ecosystem of over 700,000 projects we have identified. From here, we can begin to question what assumptions we make, from the data and community perspective.

From this talk, there will be tactical and strategic takeaways from the data science perspective.
