Ready to get involved in the FINOS community?

FIND a PLACE TO START

  • Read up on the 10 FINOS programs to learn about each program's mission and their component projects and Github repositories . Each program also has its own program site or wiki as well where you can find roadmaps, calls for help and contribution, meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting times and dial-in information. 

  • Join the FINOS Community Mailing List by sending an email to community+subscribe@finos.org.

  • Another good way to learn about FINOS programs and our community is to attend an upcoming FINOS event.

These Programs and Projects have immediate needs for further participation and contribution:

 

USE THE MEETING CALENDAR AND GOOGLE GROUPs

Joining an open source project call or program general meeting is a great way to experience FINOS and see our collaborations first hand. All program meetings can be found on the programs calendar as well as on the respective program wiki. Unsure which one to check out? A great first choice is our Open Source Readiness Project call that occurs every other Wednesday at 10am ET / 3pm BT.

Communication between scheduled meetings, and much of the overall collaboration within the FINOS community, occurs via Google Group mailing lists. Specific mailing lists used for projects within a program can be found on the respective program's wiki as well as in the directory of FINOS mailings lists.

More information about how to engage the FINOS community can be found on the FINOS Wiki at wiki.finos.org.

  • covered under an existing and active Corporate Contribution License Agreement (CCLA) executed with FINOS.
Commits from individuals not covered under an ICLA or CCLA will be flagged and blocked by the FINOS "CLA-bot" tool. Please note that some CCLAs require individual employees to be explicitly named on the CCLA. More information about FINOS CLA requirements can be found on the FINOS Wiki
