CHAOSS App Ecosystem Working Group Meeting at 1:00 pm US Central/Chicago Today

Here’s not only a reminder that our App Ecosystem Working Group meets today, but also that it’s taking place an hour later, at 1:00 pm US Central/Chicago Time. This time change will be for today only, and they will be discussing event metrics. You can join this meeting at our regular Zoom channel: https://zoom.us/my/chaoss.

CHAOSScon Registration, CfP and Sponsorship are OPEN!

You can now register for Open Source Summit, and the CHAOSScon add-on. CHAOSScon is happening in-person (and virtually) September 30 in Seattle, immediately following the OSS conference.

Also, we encourage you to check out our Call for Proposals and submit a talk! Read on for ideas around suggested topics:

Software related metrics topics:

  • tutorials
  • walk throughs
  • demos
  • how-to’s
  • new features

Metrics related topics:

  • metrics strategy
  • deep dive into the use of metrics
  • failure of metrics in practice
  • lessons learned, use cases, and case studies
  • proposals for new metrics
  • new visualizations

Do you have something to share in one of these areas? We highly encourage you to send in an abstract.

Week 5 Updates from our GSoC Students – Halfway There!

The Google Summer of Code project is halfway complete! It’s hard to believe how quickly time is passing. We always like to share updates from some of our students, because they are all doing really great work!

We know you’re all working hard, so keep up the great work! You’re doing amazing things.

Reminder: Zoom Office Hours Now Open Every Monday 

Last week, we started hosting open office hours on Mondays for newcomers to the CHAOSS project. For those who aren’t familiar with this term, it’s a time when one of the CHAOSS community will be openly available on Zoom to answer any questions you have. No registration needed; you can just hop on the CHAOSS Community Zoom call any time during the 2-hour window, and leave when your question has been answered.

Come say hello and we’ll help you find what you need!

New Chinese Slack Channel: #中国社区

To make it easier for our Chinese CHAOSS Community to participate in metrics discussions and the global community of CHAOSS, we have created a Chinese-friendly Slack channel. For anyone who would like to join this channel, you can find it here. We have a core team of bi-lingual community members who will help monitor the channel and bring the discussions to the larger community. We know Slack is only accessible to a portion of our Chinese community, but it’s a first start. We hope this helps lower the barrier for participation, even just a little.

CHAOSScast Episode #37: Patrick Woods from Orbit

Venia Logan and Georg Link had the pleasure of hosting Patrick Woods from Orbit on CHAOSScast this week, as they talk about various community management models and frameworks, and the unique perspective Orbit brings. Of course, they also talk about community health metrics, as Orbit helps community managers gather data about the activity and health of their communities. This was such a great listen!

CHAOSScast Episode 36: DEI Badging with Rachel Braun and Celia Stamps 

We were absolutely thrilled to host the amazing Rachel Braun and Celia Stamps from the Linux Foundation Events team in this latest CHAOSScast episode! Georg Link, Ruth Ikegah, Matt Germonprez, and Matt Cantu joined them to chat about the CHAOSS DEI Badging Initiative and their experience with going through the process multiple times. They discussed why it’s important to bring DEI metrics like these into practice, and how partnering with event organizers on an initiative like this helps everybody. We are super grateful for Rachel and Celia’s time, and you can listen to this episode here: https://podcast.chaoss.community/36.

Continuous Metrics Release: New Metrics Under Review

All the Working Groups have been hard at work, continuing to develop new metrics for use in measuring community health. In between our regular releases (which happen in March and September/October), we have what is called a “Continuous Metrics Release” so metrics developed during this time don’t have to wait months to be seen.

Currently open for review are these metrics, with more on the way!

Feel free to read through these metrics and make any comments or offer feedback. (These metrics will still be released under the community review period during the next release.)

CHAOSScast Episode #34: Anniversary Episode with Georg, Dawn, Matt, Sophia, & Elizabeth

This week we celebrated the anniversary of CHAOSScast, as it started a year ago! 🥳  Where did the time go? Join Georg Link, Dawn Foster, Matt Germonprez, Sophia Vargas and me (Elizabeth Barron) as we chat about the evolution of the podcast, of CHAOSS, and what might be in store for the future. We also talk about our favorite episodes and stories from the open source community. This was a lot of fun to record! Listen here: https://podcast.chaoss.community/34.

Tracking Non-Code Contributions Blog Post

Over the weekend, Georg Link published a super interesting blog post about his conversation with Marco Villegas. Marco has developed the Open Source Contribution Log tool that helps capture and quantify non-code contributions, and his work was based on CHAOSS metrics! If this is something you’d like to read more about, you can see the blog post here: https://chaoss.community/blog-post/2021/05/08/tracking-contributions-to-open-source/.
