Stars Aligned Last Year for Open Source to Forever Impact Financial Technology in 2022 (and Beyond)

A 2022 open message from our FINOS Executive Director, Gabriele Columbro:

First off, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday period and I hope your 2022 started wonderfully for you and your families. Yes, I can't deny we all are probably more than a bit DONE with this pandemic, but on the other hand I hope the working from home routine helped you find a better work-life balance and rediscover the joy of spending time with your family. It surely was the case for me, and I hope you are able to find your silver lining, whatever it might be.

Open Source Strategy Forum NYC 2021 Recap

November 19, 2021

Last week we held our second FINOS Member Meeting and Open Source Strategy Forum of the year, this time in New York. We were back at New World Stages, where we held the conference in 2019, and had high expectations for our return to the theatres. We weren’t disappointed. With more than 250 in-person attendees, there was a tremendous energy throughout both events as people reconnected and also met for the first time. Reflecting on the content and conversations, three words do well to represent the days: momentum, interoperability, and community.

In this brief recap we’ll dig just a little bit deeper into the ways OSSF NYC 2021 brought the community together.
