Welcome to the BonnyCI CI Research Project!
The goal of this project is to understand discover what value Continuous Integration provides to community-based projects.
This research uses the R programming language and R notebooks to perform data analysis and to present reports. The data are archived in Google BigQuery and Google Cloud Storage. Data sets are stored as Google BigQuery tables with smaller summary datasets stored in-repo as RDS files.
Information for specific data sets are included in the report they are associated with.
The research roadmap consists of the following phases:
I. Exploration and Identifying Questions
II. GitHub Demographics Analysis
III. TravisCI Demographics Analysis (based on GitHub project data)
IV. Measuring Value: Participation, Resilience, and Code Quality
V. Qualitative Data Collection (Survey)
VI.Publish and Present Findings
Each phase is tracked in milestones:
