Welcome to this episode of CHAOSScast! On today’s episode, we are highlighting the work that was done by technical writers through the Google Season of Docs 2020 Program. We had two technical writers working with the CHAOSS project, so we split this episode in two parts so we can speak in depth with each one of them. In the first part we will speak with Xiaoya and in the second part we will speak to Jaskirat. Xiaoya worked on documentation for our Diversity & Inclusion Badging initiative, and Jaskirat worked on completely building out our CHAOSS Community Handbook. We learn all about their projects, the application process, their experiences, and what their future plans are. Download this episode now to find out more!
