OFTF will bring CIOs and senior technologists from financial services firms together with open source community maintainers and strategists to learn about building internal open source programs and get an in depth look at how to use the most disruptive open source technologies of the moment to drive efficiency and flexibility; enable new products, services and capabilities; strengthen license compliance; and attract and maintain top talent.
“We’ve created this event in part because we’re seeing strong interest from the financial services industry in contributing to projects like Hyperledger, Cloud Foundry Foundation, Cloud Native Computing Foundation, OpenMAMA and others,” said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation. “We want others to understand how they can be involved in open source as they evolve their own solutions. Open FinTech Forum will provide an opportunity for financial services firms to continue to learn the best ways to consume, and contribute to, open source technologies.”
The two day forum will feature technical tracks on:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Blockchain/Distributed Ledger
- Kubernetes, Containers & Cloud Native Apps
- Quantum Computing
There will also be an in depth tutorial on building internal open source programs.
Registration is now open, and options include one day passes for tutorials on October 10th or keynotes and technical tracks on October 11, as well as a combo pass for both days. As with all Linux Foundation events, diversity and needs-based scholarships are available.
