Open Source Readiness - Weekly Update - 4 October 2023

October 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".

2023-10-04 OSR Weekly Update

This last week, many of us among the OSR leadership have been occupied with meticulously reviewing the final batches of questions that would form the base of the Open Source Readiness exam. This crucial phase of our delivery for the Open Source in Finance Forum (OSFF) demands a sharp focus on the quality and accuracy of each question to ensure that the exam accurately assesses a candidate's capabilities and understanding of the written material. Rob Moffat has been relentlessly leading us in this, collaborating tirelessly, and scrutinizing the wording, relevance, difficulty level, and applicability of each question to create a fair and comprehensive evaluation bar.

As part of the new content, and related to last week’s update on Supply Chain Security, we did bring up this as a leading discussion topic for the Architecture as a Code workgroup, part of DevOps Automation, where we discussed the aim and premise of the contribution we actually did towards . And - speaking of contributions: if you have contributed to the Book of Knowledge at OSR, but haven’t yet been added to the - here is your chance, make sure you would be part of the Book of Faces when we unveil it at OSFF - reminding me to point out that:


If you work for a FINOS member and live in New York, why haven’t you signed up to come to OSFF yet?

There are complimentary passes for employees of FINOS Member Firms so hurry up and register already!

The OSR and InnerSource SIGs are collaborating on running a booth at the event - would you like to help staff it? Get in touch if so! 

If you haven't received your unique member code, please contact and we’ll get you sorted.
