CHAOSScast Episode 51: Understanding the Community Through Metrics with Carina C. Zona (Part 1)

This week we were absolutely thrilled to be hosting 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 quantitative and qualitative measurement of an open source community, deciding what aspects of a community’s culture to foster and those to let go, and how the experience matters more than what the metrics might say on the surface. This episode was so good we had to break it into two parts! Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion coming in a few weeks. Part 1 can be listened to here:

Your Last Chance to Vote on a Name

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!
