You will encourage the behavior that you measure. If you want your company to be involved in sustaining open source projects you depend on, you need to start by measuring how your employees are participating in those projects.

How many of your engineers are contributing to projects your company consumes? Are they only opening issues, or are they contributing code? Are they part of the conversation? Are your non-engineers also involved in the open source community?

In this talk, Dani will demonstrate how Indeed uses open source tools to measure the velocity of open source contributions made by employees, and how they decided on those tools.
