Title: Mining GitHub for fun and profit

                           


Abstract:


With over 20 million repositories and 4 million users, GitHub is currently the largest code hosting site in the world. Software engineering researchers have been drawn to GitHub due to this popularity, as well as its integrated social features and the metadata that can be accessed through its API. To make research with GitHub data approachable, we created the GHTorrent project, a scalable, off-line mirror of all data offered through the GitHub API. In our talk, we describe how we setup GHTorrent, how we build a community around it, what types of research it has been used for (including ours) and outline future research directions stemming from this work.

Colloquium coordinators are Prof.dr. M. Aiello (e-mail : M.Aiello rug.nl ) and
