THE STATE OF OPEN SOURCE IN FINANCIAL SERVICES (REPORT)
"Speaking" of open source mattering in financial services, we are thrilled to have released our inaugural report on the State of Open Source in Financial Services. The report covers open source adoption, contribution, governance, culture, and more, with a wealth of stats and actionable insights, making it a useful read for anyone in the industry.
NEW YORK 9 & 10 NOV - MEMBER MEETING & OSSF
We're guessing by now, you may have heard that we have two major events for the FINOS Community coming up in New York on November 9th and 10th. Here are the quick and important links if you are able to join us in person.
Member (only) Meeting
Tuesday, November 9th, 12pm-6pm, New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street, New York
The FINOS Member Meeting is a unique opportunity for our members to get together and discuss the latest activity across the Foundation and the industry; network with peers from other FINOS Member organizations; and help us drive the direction of open source in financial services.
Open Source Strategy Forum (OSSF)
Wednesday, November 10th, 8am-6:30pm, New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street, New York
The Open Source Strategy Forum (OSSF) is a one-day conference for experts across financial services, technology, and open source to deepen collaboration and drive innovation in the financial services industry. Join us and hear directly from experts as they engage in stimulating and thought-provoking conversations about how to best (and safely) leverage open source software to solve industry challenges.
FINOS PROJECTS AND COMMUNITY
CATCHIT SECRET SCANNER CONTRIBUTED BY GOLDMAN SACHS
FINOS and the Goldman Sachs CatchIT project team (as well as their newly formed OSPO) are excited to announce that CatchIT Secret Scanner has been successfully contributed to FINOS. CatchIT is a simple yet powerful framework that detects sensitive information in source-code and helps mitigate the risk of credentials leakage while minimizing disruption to developers.
During the FINOS Member Meeting and OSSF London we gave out year end Member and Community Awards to our top contributors and companies for EMEA. Here is a wrap up of those folks and their accomplishments:
