Today over 80 percent of the software in any technology product or service is open source. And this trend is growing. According to a recent study, every day the supply of open source across all ecosystems increases by about 1,100 new projects and 10,000 new versions. This raises important questions about which open source projects matter. What code should I bet my product, my company, or my career on? Will those projects grow or shrink? Is the code base stable or changing? Does the project depend on one organization or many? Is the community healthy or hopelessly ill? In opensource communities, it is important to measure the health of the community. Data, like many things in life, can be beautiful. But don’t be fooled.

In this talk, I shall cover what are all the MOST IMPORTANT aspects to look into the health of a Community along with the Data :
- Evolution
- Diversity
- The value so the Community
- Risks Associated
