Reminder! Daylight Savings Time is Here! 

Now that Daylight Savings Time (DST) is rearing its ugly head again here in the United States, this is a reminder that if you are not in a place that observes DST, then CHAOSS meeting times may change for you, starting next week.

Starting March 13, CHAOSS meetings will be UTC-5. You can always check the current times of meetings on the CHAOSS calendar.

Next Badger Orientation March 15

For anyone who is interested in participating in the next round of Badger Orientations, there is a meeting starting at 9:00 am US Central / Chicago time on Wednesday, March 15. (This orientation will take up the second half of the regular DEI Badger meeting). In this meeting we will go over the badging process and how to review applications. If you are interested in becoming a new badger and would like to learn more, you can fill out this form and someone will contact you.

Registration is open for CHAOSScon NA 2023!

We have a confirmed date for CHAOSScon NA 2023! Hooray!

We will be hosting a session in the afternoon of May 9, 2023 in conjunction with Open Source Summit North America in Vancouver BC, Canada.

Registration is $20 USD and registration for OSSNA is a pre-requisite. You can register for both events on the OSSNA registration page. Sponsorship is also available, so if you’re interested in sponsoring, feel free to reach out.

The schedule is coming soon, so stay tuned for details. Hope to see you there!

Next Onboarding Session for New Chaotics

The CHAOSS community continues to grow! To make the onboarding process a little easier, Elizabeth Barron (CHAOSS Community Manager) and Ruth Ikegah (CHAOSS Africa Community Lead) will be hosting the next Onboarding Session on April 5, 2023 at 11:00 am US Central/Chicago time. We know this time is not convenient for everyone, but this is just a start and we will add and iterate as we go.

This meeting will cover:

  • General overview of CHAOSS
  • How you can begin contributing
  • How to get started with using the metrics
  • Q&A
