Every community manager knows that community metrics are important. But they all have their own set of hacky scripts for extracting data from various tools.
Building on the work of Pentaho, Talend, MLStats, gitdm and a host of others, we built a generic community dashboard for the MeeGo project. This presentation will cover the data we extracted, how we did it, and how you can do it too.
We produce gorgeous LaTeX reports while harnessing the power of R on the backend. The data is pulled from our PostgreSQL database, the analysis and visualizations are fast and distributed thanks to Redis. We'll talk about weaving together open source tools to build powerful analytics reporting engines that rival the commercial alternatives.
