To Sustain a Smart, Dependent and Social Software Ecosystem

Abstract: Third-party dependency usage is now common practice in contemporary software development. Especially with the rise of massive archives of packages on a large social platform like GitHub, keeping updated, attracting and sustaining your software project, with respect to the rest of the software ecosystem, is critical to its livelihood. In this talk, I summarize some of our work and others in this area, analysing popular package repositories like npm, Maven and PyPI, to understand their technical, social and documentation aspects.
