This Week at FINOS: Week of November 25, 2019

November 25, 2019
Thanks to everyone who attended the FINOS Open Source Strategy Forum in New York City last Wednesday. There is no denying the fun and excitement that's rapidly growing in Fintech open source. I was especially proud to see people from all over financial services networking, learning and innovating together. Thank you!
For members and contributors who'd like to relive or checkout what happened at the FINOS Open Source Strategy Forum I very much recommend the #OSSF2019 hashtag on Twitter for a running community commentary of an awesome day. Also, don't forget to add your photos and experiences to the same hashtag on Twitter and LinkedIn.  
Also, did you hear, at the Open Source Strategy Forum last week, FINOS Platinum member Goldman Sachs announced its intention to open source two products - a modeling language internally named "PURE", and a visual modeling platform that generates PURE models known in Goldman Sachs as "Alloy" - into FINOS.
