Financial institutions and fintech vendors are amongst the larger producers of software and employers of highly talented developers worldwide. Yet while Wall Street has been consistently increasingly consumption open source, this interactive-by-nature ecosystem has been largely missing out on the opportunities of open collaboration, participation and contribution open source projects.
But in the context of a massive generational and technological evolution, with cloud and decentralized technologies taking over the industry, the opportunity for an open fintech is huge for financial institution decision makers, for developers and generally for each one of us, downstream users of the financial services complex.
In this session, Gab, Executive Director of the Fintech Open Source Foundation, will discuss the state of open source in financial services, discussing trends, opportunities, concrete examples of collaboration and extending a call for contribution to the extended OSS community.
