Reminder: Meetings Are Now UTC -5

This is a reminder that most of the USA is now on Daylight Saving Time, so if you are in a place that hasn’t switched, it’s probably a good idea to make sure you are up to date with when the meetings are happening in your local time.

Meetings happen in the Chicago (US Central) time zone, which is currently UTC -5. You can check your local time here:

CHAOSS Accepted to GSoC!

For the fourth year in a row, CHAOSS has been accepted to participate in the Google Summer of Code program. We are thrilled to be connecting again with students on a variety of project ideas.

For those interested, please see our list of ideas, and join the conversation through the relevant GitHub issues for answers to questions you might have. This document describes how we select students and how to apply for an idea that is interesting to you. You are also encouraged to use the mailing list for general questions or clarification.

Best of luck! We can’t wait to meet you!
