Reminder! Daylight Savings Time is This Weekend – Check the CHAOSS Calendar!

Daylight savings happens in the United States on March 10, so if you are in a place that doesn’t observe (or hasn’t yet) you are highly encouraged to refer to the official CHAOSS calendar for current times and dates of meetings. Thanks for your patience!

New Badger Orientation Scheduled

Date: Tuesday, March 26
Time: 10:00 am US Central/Chicago

If anyone is interested in becoming a Badger, this is the meeting for you! You will learn everything you need to know to review DEI Event Badge applications. You don’t need a deep knowledge of DEI, CHAOSS, or our metrics. This is a great way to get started contributing to CHAOSS!

If you would like to be added to the meeting invite, let Elizabeth Barron know. Thank you!

(If you can’t make this meeting but would like to be a Badger, let her know that too. We can figure something out!)

They talk about privacy issues and the use of data for research, and they explore different research studies that use CHAOSS metrics. Finally, they talk about the need to bridge the gap between academia and industry, and how CHAOSS and research can help close that gap. You can listen here:

Reminder: CHAOSScon NA 2024 Registration Open

As we have done in the past, the CHAOSS project is partnering with the Linux Foundation to co-locate the next CHAOSScon with the next OSSNA (Open Source Summit North America). CHAOSScon NA 2024 will be on April 15, 2024 from 1:30-5:00 pm in Seattle, WA. Tickets are $10USD but registration to OSSNA is a requirement. You can learn more about CHAOSScon or register for both events on the OSSNA site.

While you’re registering for OSSNA, you can also register for a 1/2 day session around visualization of metrics, hosted by CHAOSS. This will be more of a hands-on workshop using CHAOSS software. This will be happening Monday, April 15 from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm and will cost $7USD.
