This presentation looks at job changes of software developers within an open source software community using
relational predictors of job change activity to model the actions of the actors involved. Interactions with other actors
on mailing lists and in software contributions will be used as predictors.
Open source software is developed in the open where anyone can view the source code and anyone with the knowledge
to do so can contribute to the project. Because people from around the world work on these projects together using
online tools with publicly accessible interactions between people, it is a relevant setting for studying job changes
using Social Network Analysis to understand and model the network relationships between individuals both before
and after a job change.
