* Metrics-Driven OSS Advocacy: Watching the Conversion Funnel

This talk will address the challenges of tracking open source project metrics and its limitations, presented from the perspective of an engineer who was specifically hired to advocate and grow strong communities around existing open source projects. Using Dave's work at Twitter as a case study, it will introduce how metrics have driven a monthly strategy for advocacy for the Apache Mesos project. The talk will address how a conversion funnel can be an effective model of evaluating and communicating where growth occurs in a project and its potential impact.
