All Things Open – Free Conference Oct 19-20

All Things Open is happening today and tomorrow, and it is a free conference that is jam packed with talks and small group discussions and of course keynotes and a virtual exhibit hall. You can still register and attend the event! Some interesting points of note:

We encourage you to check out the schedule and see if there is anything that’s right for you!

SustainOSS is our New CHAOSScast Sponsor! Hooray!

Huge shoutout to our new CHAOSScast sponsor, SustainOSS. Sustain is all about leading discussions on sustaining open source in the long-haul. They meet once per year in person and have an active forum throughout the year. You can join their conversations at and @SustainOSS on Twitter. We are so grateful for their support and for helping CHAOSScast stay around. Thank you, friends!

Hacktoberfest Participation

If you or someone you know has been looking for projects to contribute to during Hacktoberfest, look no further than our very own GrimoireLab and Augur! Both projects will have issues marked for Hacktoberfest participants and would welcome contributions of all kinds!

New Zoom Link Coming November 1

Our Community and Working Group calls are an integral part of how we get stuff done here at CHAOSS, and we want to make sure everyone knows that we will be switching to a new Zoom link for them starting November 1.  This will be provided by the Linux Foundation (thanks friends!) and will be more open and have broader shared ownership than the one graciously being provided from the University of Nebraska. Of course we will be posting this information in all the right places, this is just a heads-up that the change is coming.
