How to Participate in CHAOSS?

The CHAOSS community is dedicated to fostering an open and welcoming environment for contributors. Please read our Code of Conduct to learn more about participating in CHAOSS.

CHAOSS Community Calls

The CHAOSS community meets every Tuesday at 11am CT (usually 18:00 CET, check your local time) for one hour. Add to calendar (ICS file). -- Agenda and meeting minutes

The first Tuesday every month is a formal 'monthly call' for updates from committees, working groups, and broader community. The agenda for monthly meetings will be posted to the mailing list.

All other Tuesdays, we 'hangout' informally without agenda. The hangout provides a permanent and regular space for discussion. Topics include new metrics, how to interpret metrics, progress on software development, new features that would be nice, recaps from recent events, or community questions.

If you are new to CHAOSS, monthly calls are good for getting an update and the weekly hangouts are good for asking your specific questions.

Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android:
