Metrics Strategy for your APIs developer's community
About the talk:
You probably know that metrics are important, and you likely have metrics to measure your API success. However, have you considered those communities that are producing (internally) and consuming (internally and externally) those APIs? What you measure impacts your business decision process and the health of those communities building and using your products is key to the success of your API strategy. This talk will look beyond the walls of API's stats and will cover and share insights on analyzing the people (who, what, where, when), their networks: shape and size, and the structure of those communities. This talk will share insights on metrics strategy and metrics that matter in this respect, will provide real life examples with existing open source projects for illustration, will share existing open source tools to run this analysis, and expect the audience to walk away with practical advice for measuring software development communities.
