Title: OSCAR: Address the new challenges of open-source software quality
Speaker: Stéphane Laurière, OW2 CTO.
Room: H.2215 (Ferrer) |
Date: January 31, from 3:40 to 3:55PM.
Abstract: In this talk, we share our experience, vision and methodology regarding today's challenge of improving the quality of open source software.
With the increasing success of OSS software and in parallel the advent of OSS quality failures such as Heartbleed, the interest for models and tools able to measure and improve the quality of open-source software is growing.
This presentation covers:
- the OSCAR model, a new quality model for assessing open-source software (OSCAR stands for Open-source Sofware Capability Assessment Round-up), sustained by the OW2 Consortium. We will explain how it differs from other models and we will present the model's status and roadmap.
- the OSCAR platform, an open-source umbrella project implementing the OSCAR model by combining several open-source quality tools such as SonarQube, FOSSology, ScanCode, Spago4Q, and outcomes from the RISCOSS European collaborative project. We will show how this platform is used for continuously assessing the quality of the OW2 projects.
