At the biweekly FINOS Open Source Readiness meetings, we typically feature guest presentations by leading lights in the world of corporate open source management. But this week, we had a break between presentations and took the opportunity to check in with participants on the progress of their open source programs and the challenges on the tops of their minds. It was a great discussion, featuring participants from the financial services, insurance, and software industries.
This post summarizes some of the topics that came up, as well as some great resources mentioned by participants. Our biweekly meetings are open to all, so please consider joining a future meeting! A list of upcoming guest presentations is at the end of this post.
