OpenChain - getting it right with Open Source Software

Open Source Software is now broadly used in the development of software applications. The ability to reuse components of code already created allows development teams to create more code, with more functionality, faster. It also promotes the adoption of standards and makes applications more interoperable.

With the increasing adoption of open source software in software development there is an increasing need for organisations to understand free and open source software licensing obligations and compliance issues.

Outcome and knowledge that will be acquired from this course:

•    Basic legal understanding of the principles of open source software licensing.
•    Understand the spectrum of software licence categories e.g. reciprocal, permissive etc.
•    Obligations to be compliant with open source software licences
•    Industry best practices

Modules included in the course are:

1-    Getting it Wrong with Open Source Software
2-    What is Intellectual Property
3-    Introduction to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) licences
4-    FOSS Compliance
5-    Getting it RIGHT with Open Source Software
6-    Compliance Management
7-    Continuous compliance – A case study with UK NHS

The course has been designed for anyone concerned with and involved in Open Source Management, including operational, legal, software development managers, open source program managers, software procurement managers, software architects, developers and maintainers and product managers of open source products or proprietary products containing significant open source. Every effort has been made to present the concepts at a level that is accessible and relevant for all of these participants
