CHAOSScast China Launched! 

Huge thank you to Xiaoya Xia who is spearheading the launch of CHAOSScast’s sister podcast in Chinese! This podcast is available here so if you have ideas for guests or topics to be discussed please reach out! There are several ways for you to connect with our Chinese community, all listed on our Participate Page. Congratulations to Xiaoya for bringing CHAOSScast to a new level! We are extremely excited about this new venture.

Learning More About Contributing to CHAOSS

Several weeks ago, Matt Cantu published a blog post about common ways people connect with and join the CHAOSS community. The idea is to make this a more visible and permanent part of our website, but in the meantime, it’s a great guide to just getting started with us. You can read the blog post here and if you’re new to the community, it’s highly recommended reading. Thanks, Matt!

Reminder: Joining the CHAOSS Community

We are trying something new in the CHAOSS Community! If you’d like to get more involved with the community but aren’t sure where to start, we have a handy form for you to fill out. After that, our Community Manager (Elizabeth) will reach out to you with some guidance on where to go next. We’d love to have you participate!

Reminder: Come Join us in Slack!

CHAOSS has revived our Slack channel as a form of connecting with our community and holding space for newcomers to ask questions. If you like Slack, join us here! Join our #office-hours channel if you have questions, or just pop in our #general channel to say hello! (Also, please note, we have updated the link, so now it won’t expire!)
