Tell Us About Your Experience with the CHAOSS Website

In preparation for our website redesign happening this summer, we are doing a lightweight, high-level study of our community member’s experience with the CHAOSS site. We would love your input through this quick 3 minute survey. Thank you! ?

Join Our Maintainer Burnout Session on June 17

As part of GitHub’s Maintainer Month (June), CHAOSS is hosting a one-hour interactive workshop on Maintainer Burnout. This will be on June 17, 2022 at 12pm US Central/Chicago time.

Burnout is a relatable issue, almost everyone has been there– and it’s something we see quite often in open source. CHAOSS is hosting an interactive working group session to understand how maintainers manage burnout and talk about how to facilitate conversations about burnout and mental health in their open source communities. We will also discuss the Project Burnout metric from our DEI working group.

You can register for this free event, or if you would like to help with the event, please reach out to Ruth Ikegah on slack.
