CHAOSScon is Happening! Call for Proposals and Sponsorship is now open
We know there are still a lot of unknowns these days with regard to travel and gatherings, but we are very excited to be planning an in-person CHAOSScon for September 30. It will be co-located with the Linux Foundation’s Open Source Summit in Seattle, Washington. For those interested in speaking or potentially sponsoring the event, you can read all about it here. Registration is not yet open but should be opening soon. (And we do have plans to livestream the event for those who are unable to travel to Seattle.) You can read more about this year’s CHAOSScon on our site. Hope to see you all, either virtually or in perso
CHAOSS Meetup July 8 in Beijing
Our Chinese CHAOSS community is hosting a meetup in Beijing on July 8. If you are part of that community, or if you have friends or colleagues in the area who you think might be interested in attending, please help us spread the word! The community is amazing, and this will be a very informative and interesting meetup about community health metrics and the CHAOSS project. More information can be found on the event registration page. If you have questions, you can connect with our community in our Chinese slack channel.

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.
- When: Every Monday, beginning June 7
- Time: 9:00 am – 11:00 am US Central (Chicago) Time

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.
