New Course Teaches Practices For Implementing Open Source Compliance


Linux Foundation Training & Certification has joined hands with OpenChain Project to launch a new, free online training course, Implementing Open Source License Compliance Management (LFC194). The 2 hour online course provides knowledge of how an open source compliance management system should be structured and implemented to be most effective.

This course is intended for software developers, project managers, legal associates, and executive decision makers who already know the basics of what open source software is and how copyrights work – potentially from completing LFC193 – and are ready to take the next step towards building a formal compliance program for their organization.

Topics covered in the course include why it is important to conduct an open source review and who is involved in this process and why, as well as the steps necessary to achieve end-to-end compliance. Developer guidelines that are recommended to be followed when using open source code and contributing to open source projects and communities are also explored.

OpenChain Project maintains the International Standard for open source license compliance. This allows companies of all sizes and in all sectors to adopt the key requirements of a quality open source compliance program. OpenChain previously partnered with Linux Foundation Training & Certification to develop a free online training course, Introduction to Open Source License Compliance Management (LFC193), to communicate the basic concepts and approaches needed for an open source compliance program.

Enrollment is open now.
