Reminder: No Asia-Pacific Community Meeting This Week
Because our Chinese colleagues will be on holiday, we decided in the last Asia-Pacific Community call to cancel this week’s meeting (May 5). The regular bi-weekly schedule will resume on May 19. See you then!
New Slack Channel for Newcomers to Ask Questions!
CHAOSS has had an admittedly quiet Slack channel for a while, and during last week’s meetings we decided to create a safe space for newcomers to the project to ask questions and connect with us. We have more ideas for welcoming newcomers, but in the meantime, you can join the CHAOSS Slack channel here: https://join.slack.com/t/chaoss-workspace/shared_invite/zt-ptka3wu9-ey~fd3lh7gj2659WVVzFMQ. Join our #office-hours channel if you have questions, or just pop in our #general channel to say hello!
Upcoming Workshops for Getting Started as a Contributor to CHAOSS Software
In case you missed it, we have successfully launched a series of free virtual workshops to help you get started contributing to CHAOSS software (mostly centered on Augur). All workshops will be hosted on our Community Zoom (https://zoom.us/my/chaoss) and are from 8am – 10am CDT, 6:30pm – 8:30pm IST. You can join as an attendee, or a mentor!
