CHAOSScast Episode 52: Understanding the Community Through Metrics with Carina C. Zona (Part 2 of 2)

In a continuation of last episode’s Part 1, this week we continue to chat with Carina C. Zona, the founder of CallbackWomen and the Head of Developer Relations for Toolchain. Panelists Venia Logan and Armstrong Foundjem joined Carina and host Georg Link to discuss what metrics might be relevant to DevRel team members, and what tools can be used to collect those data points. They also discuss the use of tagging and general advice to other DevRel teams. You can listen to this Part 2 here: (or on any of your favorite podcast platforms.)

GSOC Ideas are Open!

CHAOSS is thrilled to be applying for GSOC once again. This experience has been extremely valuable and rewarding for mentees and mentors alike, and for the overall CHAOSS project. Ideas are currently being collected here: You can add your idea by forking this repo and submitting a PR. They have not yet announced accepted participating organizations, but stay tuned. The general GSOC timeline can be found here

Send Us Your Photos!

Because the community has grown so much over the last 5 years, we thought it would be fun to put together a photo mural of all our community members, past and present. If you’ve attended a meeting, joined our Slack, been a guest on our podcast, helped develop a metric, opened an issue, or simply read one of these gorgeous newsletters, then you are part of our community! You can see the specifics of what we’re looking for and where you can upload your photos here: Please join the fun!
