WELCOME NEW MEMBER: ARMORY
We're delighted that Armory recently joined FINOS as a silver member. At the core of Armory's software delivery platform is Spinnaker, a powerful open source solution for multi-cloud continuous delivery. Armory's scalable, flexible, and secure platform automates software delivery, enabling software teams to ship better software, faster. Armory brings a wealth of open source knowledge to the community and is already active in the FINOS Cloud Service Certification project.
finos INNERSOURCE SIG
FINOS now has a special interest group (SIG) focused on InnerSource! This SIG creates a safe space to identify and share challenges and solutions that accelerate regulated enterprises’ efforts to implement InnerSource policies and practices within their organizations. We've had tremendous interest already and are very excited about this new effort.
