Weekly Newsletter (April 4-8, 2022)

Welcome, She Code Africa Mentees!

Please join me in welcoming Precious Abubakar and Iyimide Adegunloye to CHAOSS! They are our newest mentees under a mentorship program called She Code Africa. This is the first year we have been a part of this program.

Some introductions from them:


From Precious: I’m Precious from Nigeria (or “PDA” – my initials, either is fine). I’m a software developer (my top skills are HTML, CSS, JavaScript/ReactJs), and I’m also a writer (I blog about my transition from healthcare to tech, but I’m working on doing more technical writing).

 

From Idiyime: I am a Front-End developer who specializes in creating exceptional and dynamic user experiences, responsive web pages and web applications.  I work with JavaScript and React JS, Bootstrap, HTML and CSS. 


Precious and Iyimide will be working on a Slack bot to help newcomers find their way in the CHAOSS ecosystem, and improve our onboarding process. We are super excited to have them here! 

New CHAOSScast Released: Episode 56 – Using GrimoireLab to Understand the Health of Your Open Source Project

On this week’s episode of CHAOSScast, we are joined by CHAOSS community member Chenqi Shan from Huawei. Chenqi chatted with Daniel Izquierdo, Sean Goggins, and Venia Logan to discuss her work with building metrics models for the open source community openEuler. They talk about which metrics might be more useful for open source projects at varying stages of the project’s lifecycle, using OpenSearch, and the different components of GrimoireLab. We are thrilled to have Chenqi in the CHAOSS community and you can listen to this episode here: https://podcast.chaoss.community/56.

CHAOSS App Ecosystem Meetings on Hiatus

The CHAOSS App Ecosystem group is taking a break, so all upcoming meetings are canceled. This group will be reorganizing and relaunching at some point in the future. Thanks to all who have been participating in these meetings!

Metrics Are Being Finalized

We have an upcoming release for our new metrics (2022-04) so we are in the final stages of adding them to the release. During this process, there will be no PRs merged in for new metrics or revisions to the current set of metrics. Working Groups are asked to make sure all metrics are in the state they should be, and that they are all added to the translations repository. Thanks for your help!
