Reminder: App Ecosystem Working Group Meets Today

Because of the awkward timing of when the newsletter usually goes out, the App Ecosystem Working Group never makes it onto our list of Upcoming Meetings. 😭 This is a super interesting group that works on developing metrics pertinent to the larger open source ecosystem. Regular participants of this group come from a variety of communities and the conversation is always lively. For recent examples of their work, check out this blog post on (How We Develop Success Metrics for Open Source Events) and the recent CHAOSScast episode (Marketing Metrics for OSS Foundations).

This group meets every other Monday at noon US Central (Chicago) time on our Community Zoom (, with the next meeting happening TODAY! Please feel free to join!

(And apologies to the regulars in this group – we ❤️ you!)
