Diederik van Liere is a postdoc at Toronto’s Rotman School of Business. His passion: finding out whether open source communities actually make software better, faster. With this in mind he’s taken an in depth look at 10 years of bugzilla.mozilla.org data to look for bug fixing patterns.

Following the presentation on Friday, the Moz-TO crew gave Diederik all kinds of constructive feedback on how to make this research better — mostly around different ways to run the data. If you have similar suggestions, please post comments and I will pass them on.
