- 10am ET / 3pm BST. Open Source Readiness: Guest Panel "Perspectives on Internal Training of Open Source Matters within Organizations"
- A key component of open source readiness is the readiness of an organizations’ own team members on open source matters and practices. Developers may need hands-on training on open source development practices and tools. Product managers might benefit from material on distributed software development methodologies. Legal and compliance teams may need to quickly get up to speed on open source licenses. Join us on August 5th to explore the topic of internal open source training of employees, looking at questions such as:
- What sort of training and courses do banks and other financial institutions make available to internal teams? What portion of this training, if any, counts towards internal annual education requirements?
- What sort of training and certification requirement do banks and other financial institutions impose internally to assess individual developer readiness to be approved to make open source contributions on an institution’s behalf?
- Who creates training? What external providers are there?
