  • Episode 26: SustainOSS and CHAOSS

    15 January 2021  |  43 mins 33 secs

    Welcome to this episode of CHAOSScast! Today, our episode is a shared podcast between CHOASScast and Sustain. Along with Georg, Venia, and Brian, we have Richard Littauer and Pia Mancini from Sustain. We had the idea to do this special episode because there’s a lot of work happening on sustaining software and understanding the health of our community, and CHAOSS focuses on what open source development is, how it works, what communities are, and how you can find metrics to figure out how something is. So, we will learn about the metrics, the Diversity & Inclusion Badging Program, and the three areas that CHAOSS has to get involved in. Also, we learn about Sustain, how it started, what they do, and what Georg says works well for the Sustain community that brought him in. Also, find out where you can get involved in both the CHAOSS community and Sustain community. Download this episode now to find out more!
