No Asia-Pacific Community Meeting Next Week
Because our Chinese colleagues will be on holiday next week, we decided in the last Asia-Pacific Community call to cancel next week’s meeting (May 5). The regular bi-weekly schedule will resume on May 19. See you then!
CHAOSScast Episode 33: Managing Portfolios of OSS Projects with Emil Wåreus
In the latest CHAOSScast episode, our panelists Georg Link, Sophia Vargas, and Armstrong Foundjem speak with Emil Wåreus from the Swedish startup debricked. They enjoyed an in-depth discussion about using analytics and computational models to understand the quality of dependencies within your open source projects, and how to mitigate bias and adverse social impacts in these complex computational models. This was a super interesting conversation that you can listen to here: https://podcast.chaoss.community/33.
