‘Update on OpenChain’ at the SFLC Fall Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, November 16, 2017 — The OpenChain Project was featured at the SFLC Fall Conference on the 3rd of November. The talk, entitled ‘Update on OpenChain’, is available as a video under CC licensing here:

“The opportunity to share the progress of the OpenChain Project is invaluable,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “I hope this video, as with others we have been featured in, helps to explain OpenChain to a wider audience and contribute to welcoming new participants.”

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.
