OpenChain Project Announces Two Talks At Open Source Summit Europe

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, October 5, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured in two talks at the Open Source Summit Europe conference held between the 23rd and 26th of October in Prague. Both of these talks will be held on Monday the 23rd of October and will feature Shane Coughlan, the OpenChain Project Director.

“The OpenChain Project is a central part of the dialogue around open source compliance,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “Our focus is on addressing the key requirements for quality compliance programs in the supply chain. To accomplish this we provide a specification outlining what those key requirements are as well as supporting online self-certification and a comprehensive set of reference curriculum materials. We are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and experience more widely at one of the most vibrant events in Europe.”

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.
