FIVE GREAT WAYS TO GET ENGAGED WITH COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

For those new to Open Source, a good place to start your journey is by evaluating some of the programs produced by our community. However, more experienced Open Source developers may be ready to immediatley participate in a working group or contribute ideas or code to a program.

There are several ways to engage within our community:

FINOS ACTIVE PROGRAMS

The following programs represent opportunities for organizations to consume, use, and put into production community developed code or protocols. They also offer the opportunity for developers to contribute code and can provide analysts with the chance to participate in standards forums.

Check out the list of active programs below and see how you can get in touch:

FDC3
FDC3 standards advance the ability of financial desktop apps to interoperate in a plug-and-play fashion without prior, bi-lateral agreements. Members of the FDC3 include representatives from over 35 major banks, buy-side firms and financial services platforms.
Hadouken
The Hadouken program supports the developer ecosystem with open source collaboration around the Hadouken APIs, plugins, and tooling. The software is being used to deploy hundreds of apps to over 400 financial firms.
Symphony

Formed to build a collaborative ecosystem for Open Source projects and open standards around the Symphony messaging and collaboration platform, it now contains more than 50 projects including Symphony integrations, bots, developer tools and desktop components of the Symphony platform.

Voice
The Voice Program enables financial services firms and vendors to participate in collaborative Open Source development related to voice technologies, voice metadata, voice APIs, and workflow enablement between voice systems and other systems that financial services firms use to conduct business.

PROGRAM STUCTURE

Projects and WORKING GROUPS

Programs are the community's mechanism through which business issues, market opportunities, and use cases are grouped together. It's through the program structure that FINOS members and contributors cooperate, specifically by creating and organizing themselves into projects and working groups

  • Projects produce shared solutions to business problems in the form of code made available though an Open Source license for any organization to use.
  • Working groups are focused efforts to creating common definitions, protocols, practices, processes and standards. However, they usually do not produce code. 

A program may have multiple projects and working groups.
