Understanding the Embedded Linux Ecosystem with Codeface - Wolfgang Mauerer, Siemens

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

Embedded Linux goes much beyond just the Linux kernel. While the kernel is very well understood for its technical benefits, development approach and social aspects, most other components of the embedded stack are less thoroughly analysed. Codeface (siemens.github.io/codeface) is a web frontend and framework to mine and analyse data sources - version control systems, mailing lists, bug trackers and raw source code. Using advanced statistical and machine learning techniques, we can understand collaboration structures in communities, evaluate the technical qualities of projects, classify different approaches to development and maintenance, and learn about the history of projects in much more detail than in typical analyses, including the popular ones of the Linux kernel. A particular focus is on the social aspects of projects, which Codeface helps to understand quantitatively.
