OpenChain UK Work Group December Meeting Announced
The third OpenChain UK Work Group meeting is being held via Zoom on Thursday 3 December from 14:00 – 16:00 GMT.
The meeting will be an interactive session with plenty of opportunity to ask questions about OpenChain adoption, which hopefully by the date of the meeting will have been released as an official ISO standard. There will also be presentations from OpenChain members, sharing their experiences and the practical steps and aspects they adopted, along with the lessons they have learnt from their approach to conformance.
OpenChain is a project of the Linux Foundation which brings established governance principles to the software supply chain. It adopts best-practice from other compliance areas and maps them to software procurement, giving businesses a clear path to minimising infringement risk in procuring, developing and deploying software, with particular emphasis on use and re-use of free and open source software (“FOSS”) components. The result is that open source licence compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for all participants in the software supply chain.
Bookings for the December meeting are now open and can be made via the Eventbrite booking form.
The meeting is free of charge, and is open to anyone (whether in the UK or otherwise) interested in finding out more about why companies as diverse as Arm, Google, Scania, Hitachi Data Systems, Toyota, Facebook, Uber and Microsoft are embracing OpenChain, as well as smaller companies like B2M Solutions and NewRoCo.
