San Francisco, United States, February 13, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured at an open source compliance workshop in London on the 22nd of March. This event is hosted by the BCS and the Open Source Hardware User Group. The speakers include Michael Jaeger, Alexios Zavras, Mirko Boehm and Armijn Hemel. The topics covered will include OpenChain, SW360, Quartermaster, SPDX and OSADL license compliance. All are welcome and there is no charge.
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.
