FINOS Landscape beta version - Feedback welcome
As FINOS has officially joined The Linux Foundation, we've implemented the FINOS Landscape. This landscape is intended as a map to explore the FINOS Ecosystem, and also shows the member companies of the FINOS Foundation. It is modelled after the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Landscape and based on the same open source code. Feedback is welcome in our GitHub repo.
OPENUK 2020 FINOS AWARD
FINOS has partnered with OpenUK to add a special award category to the OpenUK 2020 Awards. The awards recognize the roles that people across the UK play in open technology, including open source software, hardware, and data. The new FINOS award will highlight an outstanding contribution to accelerating open source in finance and fintech.
