INNERSOURCE COMMONS AT FINOS OPEN SOURCE READINESS GUEST SPEAKERS
Last week, Roderick Randolph and Arthur Maltson, both Distinguished Engineers at Capital One discussed Capital One's InnerSource Journey, and the pitfalls and peaks they've experienced along the way.
This particular webinar for OSR featured the third in a series of collaborations between FINOS and InnerSource Commons, and have helped launch the FINOS InnerSource Special Interest Group who just held their kickoff this week.

finos GOOD FIRST ISSUES & HELP WANTED
Your Opportunity To Get Involved
A good place to start contributing to, and making a difference in, open source in financial services is by taking a look at the FINOS Good First Issues (GFI) List on GitHub. This list includes issues and "help wanted" posts from our open source projects like Legend, Morphir, Waltz, Perspective, and many others.
This week we're highlighting GFIs from the Perspective Project. The project is based around streaming pivot visualization via WebAssembly.
