Holiday Schedule for CHAOSS Meetings

This year we are following our tradition of taking a little break from official CHAOSS meetings at the end of the year. Please note the following meeting cancellations:

  • Week of November 21 – no meetings (with the exception of an Intro to Augur session as noted below)
  • December 12- January 9 – no meetings

CHAOSS work can still occur asynchronously if an individual Working Group wishes, and a lot of us will be around in Slack periodically if anything urgent comes up. But the hope is that we all take this time to rest and protect ourselves from burnout, so that we can come back refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to start anew in 2023!

CHAOSScon EU 2023 is Happening! 

We are super excited to announce that CHAOSScon EU 2023 is happening in conjunction with FOSDEM in Brussels, Belgium.  CHAOSScon day will happen on February 3 from 8:00 to 17:00 Central European Standard Time. Although we are still finalizing some details, registration is open and you can learn more about this conference on the CHAOSScon EU 2023 website. 

Hope you can join us!

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 January 11, 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

We hope you can join to meet other newcomers and learn about CHAOSS! You can convert to your time zone here.

CHAOSS Asia-Pacific Community Meeting Time Change

To make the Asia-Pacific Community meeting a little friendlier to the folks in that local region, this meeting is being moved to 2 hours earlier. This meeting will now happen at 6:00 am US Central/Chicago time, every other Wednesday. The next meeting for this group will happen on November 30, 2022.  Additionally, these meetings may start to happen in Mandarin Chinese to make it more accessible for that community to participate and connect with each other. Feel free to join anytime if you are in the area!

New Streamlined Issue Template for Releasing New Metrics

If you are working in one of our Working Groups and the team has developed a new metric for release, you will notice a new and improved issue template for the process of releasing that metric for public review. The idea was that it would be a little less daunting, without sacrificing any quality. You can find the new template in each working group, and an example here.

Upcoming Meetings

No meetings next week because of the US Thanksgiving holiday, with the exception of this:
