Joshua Matheus, Open Compute Project Foundation Board Member, and Global Head of Networks for Goldman Sachs, will be making a presentation entitled The Open Compute Project: Open IT Infrastructure to Achieve Greater Choice, Customization, and Cost Savings at the 2017 Open Source Strategy Forum, on 8 November, in downtown New York City.
In just a few weeks, we’ll be heading out to the Open Source Strategy Forum in New York City. At OSSF, there are a wide variety of talks, covering topics of community-wide appeal. Everything from understanding licensing issues, like those we recently saw around BSD+Patents in the React community, to enabling developers to contribute back in the open. Before we head out, we wanted to share some of the talks we’re looking forward to at the event.

Open Source Strategy Forum 2017 Keynote Preview
The Open Source Software (OSS) movement is one of the more important and successful examples of collective problem solving that we’ve seen in our lifetimes. Through flexible collaboration, a broad group of individuals have worked together to create software which changes the lives of billions by delivering software to every branch of life, including financial services.
The 2017 Open Source Strategy Forum schedule (v 1.0 now live) has been structured to provide world-class open source educational sessions delivered by some of the top thought leaders in open source technology and financial services.
At a macro level registration will open at 7:30 am ET on November 8, programming will begin at 8:45 am ET, and will wrap up by 5:00 pm ET. This should allow attendees to keep a “normal” schedule and enable an easy transition when returning to work or home on Thursday.
When choosing speakers and sessions every effort was made to feature content applicable to every type of possible attendee. Everyone from the C-level executive to the senior level technologist to the everyday technologist contributing to or consuming open source should find something of interest and of value.
Specifically, the conference is for the following types of people:
1. CIOs, CTOs, COOs, Directors of Technology, Computer/Information Systems Analysts, IT Directors, IT Managers, MIS Directors, Technical Operations Officers
2. Compliance Officers, Software Supply Chain Managers, IP Counsel, DevOps Managers
3. Architects, Designers, Developers, Programmers, Analysts, Engineers
While open source has gradually become central to the business models of even the most reluctant firms in the software industry, software development in financial services remains uniquely siloed. For all of their technical sophistication and business savvy, few firms are ready to make the jump from consuming open source to contributing to an open source project.
