Welcome Google Summer of Code Students!

We are very excited to be working with 6 students for the 2021 Google Summer of Code session. We hoped to be able to include more student projects, and although we received numerous awesome proposals, we are thrilled to have these students joining us! ✨

Our students this summer are:

  • Yeming Gu 
  • Rashmi KA
  • Yash Prakash
  • Anuj Lamoria
  • Dhruv Sachdev
  • Ritik Malik

You can see the list of projects they’re working on here: Although some of our GSoC students have been attending our community calls and submitting PRs already, if you see Yeming, Rashmi, Yash, Anuj, Dhruv, or Ritik, please welcome them to the community!

CHAOSSCon Planning Has Begun, and We Need Your Input!

The CHAOSSCon planning committee has started developing ideas for this year’s CHAOSSCon. We would love your input! Please give us your thoughts here:

We are in the early stages of planning but will be using time at the end of each week’s Community Call to move ideas forward. Keep an eye out for updates and we can’t wait to see you in person!

Zoom Office Hours Starting Monday, June 7

Sean Goggins, Matt Germonprez, and me (Elizabeth Barron) will be hosting a weekly open Zoom call from 9:00-11:00 US Central (Chicago) time on Monday mornings.  We will start the calls on June 7, so if you’re new to the project or just want to pop in to ask questions, we’ll be there! We’re happy to chat with you. You can join anytime here, and of course, you don’t need to stick around for the full 2-hour window:

Reminder: Come Join us in Slack!

CHAOSS has revived our Slack channel as a form of connecting with our community and holding space for newcomers to ask questions. If you like Slack, join us here! Join our #office-hours channel if you have questions, or just pop in our #general channel to say hello!
