Open Source Readiness - Weekly Update - 4 April 2023

April 04, 2023

This year at FINOS we are focusing on one of FINOS' key existing projects: Open Source Readiness. This is FINOS' term for helping the finance industry "do open source properly". 

Hello! Welcome to the OSR weekly update! What’s Happening this week? 

Coming up This Week

Tomorrow we have the OSR SIG meeting (Wednesday 10AM EST/3PM BST). Check out the FINOS Calendar and get involved.

We will be talking about training for open source development and managing products based on open source.

Ready To Read

Cara Delia’s work (with several supporting meetings from everyone in the SIG) on Personas related to open source is now live as a first version! You can start reading here. It includes 14 different personas and details about how they interact with open source software in their jobs. If you are working in open source, this gives useful information about how to engage with these people. 

Please have a read and give us your feedback and ideas to improve this! There are plenty of gaps and room for improvement.

And Finally

If you haven’t already, please fill out the form to help us with FINOS Open Source Certification! The kick off meeting on this will be after the Easter break. Stay tuned!
