OpenChain Project to keynote at FOSS Backstage
SAN FRANCISCO, United States, January 9, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured in an opening keynote at FOSS Backstage 2018. FOSS Backstage 2018 will take place on the 13th and 14th June in Berlin, Germany.
“2018 will be focused on spreading the word and welcoming new participants into the OpenChain Project community,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “Opening FOSS Backstage with a keynote is a great opportunity for us to share our project, share our vision and to outline developments over the next twelve months.”
The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.
The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.
The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.
Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
