The FDC3 community is delighted to announce the release of FDC3 1.1!

In its 2+ years as an open source organization, FDC3 has brought key financial firms together to set, and put into production, standards for application interoperability.  As we approach the release of the FDC3 1.1 standard, this webinar will look at what's new in FDC3 and how we got there through a collaborative, open source approach.

This is the first point update to the FDC3 standard since 1.0 was released a year ago. 1.1 has been an extremely collaborative process with active contribution and input from 10 different firms and a lot of input from teams putting 1.0 into production.  We especially want to give a huge thanks to all of the stakeholders who worked so hard to make this happen!

Be sure to check out the presentation that Nick Kolba, FDC3 Project Lead/Chair, gave during the FINOS virtual Meetup on April 1, 2020. It includes great information on FDC3 1.1.

As always, this is a community effort and we welcome and encourage everyone to get involved! You can do so by reaching out to us on Github or at

As part of our continued commitment to provide value to our Members and our greater Community, FINOS is expanding our use of virtual meetings and digital communication. While we know this can’t replace our in-person meetups (in New York, London, and Edinburgh), conferences (Open Source Strategy Forum - OSSF - in London and New York), and exclusive FINOS Member Meetings, we think it is a great way for our Community to share their achievements, ideas and even challenges related to open source in financial services.

FINOS will continue to produce short, regular “meetups” via WebEx (usually on a bi-weekly basis), with guest speakers we often feature in our in-person meetups and at OSSF.  This quarter's theme is “Overcoming barriers to open source collaboration in financial services - with practical examples.” Join us to see real examples of successful collaboration, hear a few top tips from active contributors, and learn about some innovative approaches to maintaining open source projects.
