This Week at FINOS: Week of April 11, 2022

April 10, 2022

Here's what's happening during the week of April 11, 2022 within the FINOS community.

The official Open Source in Finance Forum London Call for Papers ended yesterday. Since you are family (FINOS Community), if you missed the deadline and want to submit a talk for the July conference - email us at and let us know (very soon).

If you would like to attend OSFF on 13 July - Register Here.

Remember, FINOS Member Employees attend for free, but Gold and Silver members have limited passes available. We're sending out discount codes to our member POC's - but if you would like to attend - email us at


Also, if you are in London on Wednesday the 20th of April, join the FINOS team and community for our second in-person Open Source in Finance meetup of 2022. Hear talks from David Watkins and Jessica Woodland-Scott from the Waltz open source team as they introduce the project, the evolution of Waltz, and what it's like to be open source contributors in banking. If you are unable to attend in-person, we will be broadcasting the meetup presentations via Zoom, but you still must register for the meetup to access the live-steamed event.

FINOS is excited to announce “Open implementation of the FDC3 standard using Electron and an integrated App Directory” has been proposed on the FINOS Community repo for your comments and feedback.

(You may have noticed a change in format on This Week at FINOS (TWAF) - we're trying to streamline our communications some to be of more value to our community. If you any have thoughts how we can continue to make this TWAF more readable and valuable to you - our Community - please email us at and let us know!)
