Volunteers Needed for D&I Badging Phase 2
Maybe you’ve always wanted to be an event organizer, but thought “nah, that’s a lot of work.” (You’re not wrong, it is a lot of work). The good news is now you can have all the glory that comes with being an event organizer without any of the actual work! Our D&I Badging Program is searching for volunteers to submit, review, and moderate mock events for Phase 2 of their pilot testing. Check the post and reach out if you have a few extra minutes to spare for this excellent cause.

Google Summer of Code and Outreachy Student Highlights
With only a few weeks left in the summer mentorship programs, our students have made excellent progress. Here are just a few highlights from 2 of our students, and we will continue to highlight different students’ work in our weekly newsletter. They’re all doing a fantastic job! Read more on their blogs below:
- Venu completed the pilot study for analyzing metrics on Gitlab, and plans to expand that work into GitHub, using CHAOSS as the pilot study for that implementation.
- Ria continues to evolve the implementation of SCMS inside CHAOSS, with continuous upgrades to its UX and functionality, and assistance with tagging and calibration of the codex.
Keep up the awesome work!
