Augur is a metrics prototyping tool that serves the CHAOSS Community. Its core features are aimed at storytelling through metrics. In this workshop session participants will learn to install and configure Augur for their own use, with different cases being available for community managers with less than 50 repositories and organizations with thousands of repositories to keep track of. In this lab/workshop you will:

1. Gather metrics for a few dozen open source repositories of your choosing
2. Compare your repositories with similar repositories drawn from the Augur library
3. Download graphics for storytelling
4. Download copies of your data for assessment and validation
5. Explore using the Augur Metrics API to systematically get project metrics to analyze using your own preferred tools.

This lab/workshop is designed to be hands on and engaged, so participants leave the session with new tools for explore CHAOSS metrics. Emerging Risk and Value metrics will be featured.
