Ready to get involved in the FINOS community?


Check out the descriptions of the 11 FINOS programs to learn about a program's mission and its various working groups and projects. Each program also has its own program site or wiki listed off the program descriptions where you can find roadmaps, calls for help and contribution, meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting times and dial-in information.

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

current "help wanted" opportunities

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

  • The Plexus Program PMC is developing a proposal for the FINOS Board that could expand that program's scope into several potential areas including desktop containers, development of cross-container APIs in JavaScript and .NET, and creation of an FDC3 API reference implementation. If you'd like to learn more about what's being discussed and potentially provide feedback, send an email to the Plexus PMC list (


  • ChartIQ has announced its intent to contribute its "Secure Electron Adaptor". Review and provide and feedback directly in JIRA on CONTRIB-52. Into which program this contribution would come is still TBD; one possibility is Plexus. 








Joining a working group 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 Working Group 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 and working groups within a program can be found on the respective program's wiki as well as in the directory of FINOS mailings lists.
