GSoC Kicks Off!

The Google Summer of Code 2021 bonding time has ended, and the program has officially launched! Our students are working on a variety of projects within the CHAOSS community, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them joining us. You can expect regular updates from them on our community calls, and in blog posts to the mailing list and in the newsletter. We are looking forward to seeing what they accomplish in their time with us!

Reminder: Zoom Office Hours Now Open Every Monday 

Last week, we started hosting open office hours on Mondays for newcomers to the CHAOSS project. For those who aren’t familiar with this term, it’s a time when one of the CHAOSS community will be openly available on Zoom to answer any questions you have. No registration needed; you can just hop on the CHAOSS Community Zoom call any time during the 2-hour window, and leave when your question has been answered.

Come say hello and we’ll help you find what you need!

And here’s a reminder that if you’re already a member of the CHAOSS community and would like to help out with this initiative, you can sign up for a 2-hour slot here.

Only a Few Workshops Left for Getting Started as a Contributor to CHAOSS Software

You still have time to join one of our upcoming workshop series. 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! GSoC Students are also highly encouraged to attend.

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! 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! (Also, please note, we have updated the link, so now it won’t expire!)
