How to Be a Good Corporate Citizen in Open Source

Collaboration in open source projects is important for companies, but it can be difficult to strike the right balance between the needs of the company and the open source project. This can create friction and put pressure on employees who participate on behalf of their company when the needs of the individual, the company, and the community are not aligned. This talk will focus on ways to create this alignment and help all of us be successful together. Communities are a critical component of open source projects, and the way that people participate can reflect positively or negatively on the person and organization that they represent. The majority of work in some projects, like Kubernetes, is done by people working for a wide variety of organizations, and the success of many projects requires participation from these companies. The talk contains three major sections: 1) Dynamics of collaboration in open source projects between individuals, companies, and communities. 2) Strategies for participating in ways that will benefit your company, your employees, and the community. 3) Tips for being a good corporate citizen as you contribute to open source projects.

    Project Updates: Financial Objects – Product Control Common Template – FINIOS TEAM 17 November

    There is a lot happening within our SIGs and Projects, and we want to highlight some, including Financial Objects.The FINOS Financial Objects SIG (Special Interest Group) is a community-led forum to discuss and identify the need for new, open financial object standards as well as modifications to existing standards, and The goal of the Financial Objects SIG is to provide a neutral forum for individuals across the financial services industry to collectively identify the need for new, open, financial objects standards as well as modifications to existing ones. The Financial Objects SIG also aims to promote the adoption of financial object definitions and models that support common industry workflows and use cases.In January 2021, The FO SIG proposed and launched two projects: the Commodities Payout and the Product Control Common Template. It became evident that after the launch of the two working streams, there were overarching, common elements to these work streams (modeling financial objects, using Legend & the FINOS hosted Legend Studio instance, and leveraging the ISDA CDM); every workstream has specific requirements that warrant separate governance structures.
