FINOS NEWS & UPDATES
THE OSSF AGENDA IS LIVE!
You've heard us say that we have a great line up for OSSF this year. Now you can check it out for yourself. We have talks that cover all angles of open source in financial services, so whether your interests lean towards business, technical, legal, community or culture topics we're sure you'll find an interesting talk. Don’t forget that FINOS members attend free. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your FINOS member access code.
Community Spotlight - DANIELA ZHELEVA
As part of our celebration of the FINOS community we're recognizing the awesome work of our open source contributors and the wider FINOS community. For this third edition we’d like to highlight Daniela Zheleva, DevOps Engineer at Deutsche Bank, for the cloud expertise and quality of work she brings to the FINOS Cloud Service Certification open source project.
OSSF FEATURED SPEAKER - LESLIE HAWTHORN
We're excited about the many fantastic speakers we'll have at OSSF this year, including Leslie Hawthorn, Manager - Vertical Community Strategy at Red Hat. Leslie is no stranger to the "FINOS stage" and we always look forward to hearing insights from her real-world experience building and managing open source communities. She'll be speaking with her colleague, Joe Giordano, about how co-creating open source software can benefit financial services businesses.

OPEN SOURCE READINESS GUEST SPEAKERS
The FINOS Open Source Readiness project helps member firms accelerate their journey towards open source readiness. We've lined up some great guest speakers over the past year, and here are a couple recent videos from these presentations.
VIRTUAL "MEETUP" TALKS
In April we shifted our focus from in-person events, to virtual. We love meetups, and wanted to provide a space to help foster the community "feel" inherent in those meetups. Our FINOS Virtual "Meetup" guest speakers have done a great job in helping to rebuild some of the community feel we've lost over the past months with interesting and informative topics on FINOS projects, open source in financial services, and even the background story on a COVID contact tracing app. Here are some of the most recent videos and slides.
OUR PODCAST - FINOS OPEN SOURCE IN FINTECH
Did you know that FINOS has a podcast? Our Director of Community, James McLeod, regularly speaks with our community about FINOS projects and interesting topics at the cross section of financial services and open source. Check it out, subscribe, and don’t forget to rate us (5 stars)!
