OpenChain Project Announces Open Session at Open Source Summit Europe

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, October 10, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will hold an Open Session at Open Source Summit Europe in Prague from 2pm to 4pm on Tuesday the 24th of October. This event will take place in the Roma room and is open to all interested parties. It will be an interactive session to discuss the OpenChain Specification, Conformance, Curriculum and Onboarding. Participants are asked to RSVP the Project Director to confirm their attendance.

“The OpenChain Project is always seeking new voices and new perspectives,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “As we move towards 2018 and broader adoption of the OpenChain Specification we are explicitly seeking engagement from a all interested parties. The Open Session at Open Source Summit Europe provides a significant opportunity to meet the Work Team leads face-to-face and share ideas.”

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.
