BOF: Discussing Metrics for Open Source in Light of Insights from the CHAOSS Project - Georg Link, Bitergia
Open source communities have grown beyond what we can comprehend without tool support. The complexity is still on the rise including cross-community collaboration of dependent projects. We can use metrics for observing community health. This comes with challenges including a choice for what is important enough to measure and where to get the data. The birds of a feather session will begin by addressing the challenges with insights from the Linux Foundation CHAOSS (Community Health Analytics Open Source Software) project, which is at the forefront of establishing best practices for community metrics. These insights include: establishing a baseline against which to measure community changes, building a metrics strategy for a community, observing cross-community collaboration when contributors work across open source projects, and tools available to begin the metrics journey. After sharing these insights, the second part of the session will be an open dialog about experiences, concerns, and specific use cases that participants bring forward. For a large group, we will split into smaller discussion groups and share highlights at the end.

Panel Discussion: Bridging Modern DevOps and the Mainframe - John Mertic, Linux Foundation; Jenn Francis, IBM & Len Santalucia, Vicom Infinity, Inc.
Join this roundtable session to learn the latest approaches to integrating the mainframe into modern devops tooling and practices to accelerate delivery and drive true cross-platform applications. The panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities that led to the creation of the Linux Foundation’s Open Mainframe Project and its Zowe initiative.  Launched last August, Zowe is the first open source project based on IBMz’s z/OS and serves as an integration platform for the next generation of tools for administration, management and development on z/OS mainframes. By utilizing new interfaces and an API mediation layer, enterprises can now more easily integrate rich mainframe resources and extend ‘API-first’ to the mainframe.

Open Source and ISO Standards - How OpenChain Became The International Standard for Compliance - Shane Coughlan, OpenChain
This talk will explore the process of building and deploying the first Linux Foundation ISO standard in fourteen years in collaboration with the Joint Development Foundation. It will explain why the evolution from de facto industry standard to formal standardization was important for open source compliance in the context of areas like sale, procurement and M&A. An equal amount of time will be spent providing a guide to the journey itself, as the lessons learned are applicable to all projects building out specifications or code that seek worldwide, lasting adoption across multiple industries. The standardization process will be framed in the context of timely engagement, with SPDX queued to be the second Joint Development Foundation PAS submission behind OpenChain, and everyone involved ready to support more projects undertaking a similar journey in the months and years ahead. In practical terms, this talk will allow the audience to come away with a clear understanding of how we will take open source and standards to the next level.
