At the end of July, we have two great events coming up featuring the FINOS Legend project that you can sign up for. Legend 101 on July 27 will be a primer for users regardless of technical or data modeling background. Legend Feature Deep Dive on July 29 will talk about the most recently launched features of the project. And... as a little bit of a primer for the primers... below is a link to a Goldman Sachs interview with Pierre De Belen, Goldman's head architect for Legend.
