The Life and Times of a Node.js Release - Danielle Adams, Amazon Web Services
The Node.js release schedule may seem overwhelming to keep up with, maintaining 3 or 4 versions at a time, but there’s no shortage of effort that goes into releases to support the wide use of JavaScript across the web. Many Node.js contributors spend hours discussing APIs, running tests, and preparing release notes for a single release - but how does it all come together? As a releaser, I will discuss the work that goes into a release, tips I’ve picked up along the way, and how every contribution counts. Learn how the Node.js project manages major releases, security releases, long-term support, and everything in between.

Exploring Open Reg Tech with the LCR - Stephen Goldbaum, Morgan Stanley
Open Regulation Technology has the potential to greatly improve efficiency across the Finance Industry. FINOS formed the Open Reg Tech SIG (Special Interest Group) in recoginition of that potential. One of the goals of the SIG is to demonstrate how regulations can be delivered as code. The SIG proposed using the US LCR as an introductory regulation. This presentation will demonstrate the results of that effort. It will explore authoring a regulation as code, ensuring it's open to execution across a range of technologies, and integrating the results with other initiatives, like as data cataloguing, lineage, and ontologies. The solution involves a range of FINOS projects and is a great demonstration of how the FINOS ecosystem can be combined to solve real industry problems.

How Digital Public Goods Are Bringing the $10 Trillion Informal Economy Into the Digital Payments Loop - Paula Hunter, Mojaloop Foundation
A growing list of developing countries and mobile money operators are turning to digital public goods as a path forward to achieve their interoperability and financial inclusion goals. A new post-COVID-19 digital renaissance is emerging. More than 100 countries have made digital government-to-person (G2P) payments possible during COVID-19 and now have the potential to scale up their interoperable payment system designs to provide permanent relief to their unbanked populations. Digital public goods (DPGs), such as Mojaloop, an open source software recognized by the Digital Public Goods Alliance, are the catalyst to interoperable payments systems and G2P payments that could bring the 1.4 billion people unbanked into the digital economy – especially since most citizens already own a simple mobile phone. If successful, the $10 trillion-dollar informal economy could have a direct pathway into the digital financial sector.

From Builds & CI to Security Testing in a Single PR - Sarah Khalife, GitHub
Securing the app development lifecycle early on and incorporating security through a transparent and consistent process is key in building any production level applications. On a daily basis, how often do you build your application? Now think, how often do you scan for vulnerabilities in the code? This is mostly an afterthought, and is not always considered as the easy part of developing any applications. The recent vulnerability exploits reinforced the need for a secure development lifecycle. Simplifying and automating the process all in a single pull request makes it much easier for any app developer to add security in their pipeline. This talk will cover how to leverage available open source tooling to build and test an application, run security scans across it, and package it for shipping. The session will also provide a step-by-step demonstration on how to set it up all within a pull request and push the application to a production environment in a consistent manner.

The Path to Amazing Software Through Open Source - Andrew Duckett, Discover
The path to building amazing software starts with engineering teams empowered through open source and technology. However, Engineering organizations are dealing with an ever increasing landscape of tools, systems, technologies, compliance, decisions and tasks that developers have to navigate. This leads to decreased productivity and drives what many refer to as Developer Fatigue. This is where a Developer Experience Strategy can help. In this talk, we discuss the journey trough open source and open models of working. You will learn the importance of establishing the foundational graph and community approach to prioritizing use cases and tools. Then transition to how this approach creates the opportunity to reduce cognitive load and simplify the path to the next best action, decision, and ultimately focusing on the things that matter.

High-Performance Market Data in a Cloud-Native World - Matt Tait & Salvatore Sferrazza, Google Cloud
Low-latency, high-performance electronic trading networks predate the emergence of cloud computing by more than a decade. Due to the stringent performance demands of this workload, schemas are explicit, encoding is binary and transports are unreliable. Cloud computing, on the other hand, favors self-describing text-based encoding and stateless transports like HTTP. This results in excellent interoperability between services and teams, but results in inefficiencies that compound at scale. This talk will discuss the challenges of bridging these two worlds and illustrate patterns that the speaker has used to solve the problem of analyzing granular electronic trading data in the cloud. The audience will be taken through a history of common electronic trading protocols such as FIX, ITCH and Simple Binary Encoding. The speaker will identify the differences between high and low-context encoding, and describe the obstacles encountered ingesting common electronic trading formats into cloud-native services. The session concludes with a pattern for integrating the two worlds harmoniously by deconstructing schemas, encodings and transports.

And it’s not always obvious if or how you need to amend your code to successfully upgrade. In this talk, I’ll share my experiences of helping teams upgrade to new Node.js versions, with some practical shortcuts and tips I’ve learned along the way.

Bridging the Gap - Connecting Multiple Desktop Agents in Your FDC3 Environment - Tiago Pina, Cosaic & Aaron Haines, Nat West Markets
This presentation will introduce you to FDC3 Desktop Agent bridging—a proposed new part of the FDC3 Standard and FINOS-contributed project, allowing you to interconnect multiple FDC3 Desktop Agents and the applications they host. With this new part of the Standard we can go one step further than interoperability, allowing workflows to span apps hosted by multiple Desktop Agents. This is a game-changer for firms who have their own in-house Desktop Agent and want to connect to Desktop suites from vendors and other firms for seamless workflow, without the need for bilateral integration projects. Joining us in conversation will be NatWest Markets, whose recent contribution of the 'BackPlane' project to FINOS is the first implementation of a Desktop Agent Bridge. BackPlane can connect Desktop Agents whether they are running on the same PC or multiple PCs on the same network, as well as providing support for integrating of monolithic legacy .NET apps that don't yet run in a Desktop Agent. In this presentation we’ll discuss: What is Desktop Agent Bridging and why do we need it? How the proposed Desktop Agent Bridge and its implementation in BackPlane works How can you get involved

Broader Adoption of FINOS Projects, Case Studies - Charming Legend and Waltz - Srikrishna 'Kris' Sharma, Canonical Ltd.
Goldman Sachs had open sourced its internally developed Legend data management platform into FINOS in Oct 2020. Legend provides an end-to-end data platform experience covering the full data lifecycle. Waltz, contributed to FINOS by Deutsche Bank, helps large organisations understand their technology landscape in a consistent, well-documented and easily digestible format. One of the key factors that drive broader adoption and contribution to Legend and Waltz by the FINOS community is ease of deployment and usage. In the spirit of creating an awesome engineering experience, Canonical worked closely with FINOS and the community to leverage open source projects like Juju and Charmed Operators for ease of Legend and Waltz deployment and usage. In this session talk, Srikrishna ‘Kris’ Sharma will present how the entire Legend and Waltz environments can be set up from scratch and managed in just a few steps using Juju and Charmed operators.

Modernize Regulatory Reporting: Get Ready for T+1 Settlement - Antoine Amend, Databricks; Stephen Goldbaum, Morgan Stanley; Ephrim Stanley, Goldman Sachs and Moderated by Ashley Trainer, Databricks
Financial regulators and capital market participants have laid out a path to shorten the standard settlement cycle to the trade date plus one business day (T+1) by September 3, 2024. The transition to T+1 means that shortening the settlement cycle can mitigate risk, increase overall efficiency, and allow for better uses of capital. Panelists will cover the advantage of having a unified, open-source technology platform (like Morphir, Legend) and application interoperability to help manage this significant transition. In this talk, the speakers will:
  •  Demonstrate the benefits of the Lakehouse in the ingestion, processing, validation, and transmission of regulatory data. 
  • Address the need for organizations to ensure consistency, integrity and timeliness of regulatory pipelines. 
  • Show how capital market firms could bring full transparency and confidence to the regulatory data, reducing operation costs and adapting to new standards like T+1. Given the timeline of implementation, 2022 has been labeled the year of impact analysis and securing budgets and management buy-in.

What's Community Got to Do with It? Navigating Open Source Contributions in the Financial Industry - Maria Ashby, Independent & Matt Gogerly, JP Morgan Chase & Co
The Fintech space has grown exponentially in the last few years. It has a bright future in terms of the quality of engineering and the new projects being proposed. However, this growth relies heavily on the contributions of open source communities. In order to stay on track, the fintech community requires new users who are interested in the intersection of finance and software development to achieve all of its technical goals. In this talk, Maria and Matt will highlight the Spinnaker community as an example of managing open source contributions in a highly regulated industry. Maria will propose a community engagement strategic plan that involves revamping the new user experience for members of FINOS projects, new content ideas, and community support for new members of the fintech community.

Rethinking Risk, Governance, and Compliance Applying Automation - Michael Edenzon, Fianu Labs
Are you toiling in response to a 'Matter Requires Immediate Attention' notice regarding your security posture?

The banking sector strives for cloud velocity with the hope to fulfil the promise of developer productivity and operational efficiency. The stark reality is investments in automation inevitably bottleneck in compliance toil more often than not. In simple terms, the work is about the ability to credibly demonstrate they've done the work they said they would. Why is this so hard?

Given the complexity involved in getting this done right, we must collectively rethink how to go about it. The presentation seeks to elucidate a path away from manual auditing and inspection towards automation that can help programmatically answer and meet regulatory and compliance objectives. You will leave this session with a stronger understanding of recent advances in open source along with the breadth and depth of novel approaches to automated governance, risk, and compliance, along with resources to further develop your knowledge.

Open Source Powered Real-Time Fraud Analysis in a Hybrid Cloud Environment - Yichong Yu & Krishna Ratakonda, IBM
Real-time analytics could help financial institutions create enhanced customer experience, combat fraud, and manage risk better. This talk uses credit card fraud detection to demonstrate how to combine the power of open source and closed source to build and train the AI model for fraud detection on the Cloud and deploy it for real-time fraud detection on the mainframe at scale. Credit card transactions are typically processed on a mainframe. Training the model is more convenient in a Cloud setting where the on-premise transaction data and other relevant third party data are brought into a secure environment compliant with financial industry regulations. This talk shows how to build and train deep learning models using TensorFlow on the Cloud and persist the trained model in an open standard format (ONNX). Finally the trained model is deployed on the IBM mainframe where Telum AI Accelerator is used for real-time in-transaction inference at scale. The pattern described in this talk could be applied to other use cases in financial industry and beyond. Open source and closed source software can work in harmony to solve many real-world problems in a hybrid multi-cloud environment.

Payments and financial instruments are the runner-ups, so why not combine the two?

In this session, we will discuss why provenance matters and how the financial services industry can benefit from a blockchain-backed provenance solution – through the eyes of corporate actions.

A corporate action is an event that materially impacts an organization and its stakeholders. Typical corporate actions include the payment of dividends, mergers, acquisitions, spinoffs, among other events. A single event may involve hundreds of market participants, and may cascade down to thousands of investors. The management of corporate actions is a complex process, and to a large extent, it’s still manual. Errors in the handling of a corporate action may result in major financial losses.

The ability to digitally record the issuance of a corporate action as well as its entire life journey immutably, has the potential to substantially improve corporate actions management.

Closing with a demo of provenance in action, we will showcase BTP’s Chronicle, a blockchain-backed, domain-agnostic solution for immutably recording provenance data, in this case applied to corporate actions.

Automating Governance - Dear Security, Compliance, and Auditors, We’re Sorry. Love, DevOps. - Bill Bensing, Red Hat
Stop it with the DevSecAuditComplianceOps buzzwords within the software supply chain. Let’s simply talk about Modern Governance. Great software supply chain hygiene requires governance. Governance stinks because we do it wrong. I promise to give you the means to go from commit to production with 100% no-human-hands. All while meeting visibility, security, compliance, and audit requirements without fail. Modern Governance applies to standard line-of-business software, machine learning, edge, IoT, and any other software artifact. DevOps solved the Developer and Operators conflict. It forgot other essential folks of the delivery lifecycle: Security, Compliance, and Audit. It's also missing the newest entrant, Software Supply Chain Management. We will talk about Modern Governance. Modern Governance resolves governance toil with a software engineering approach. It is no different than applying Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) principles & practices to the dull, mundane, and toil-ridden governance processes.

How Brex Leverages Backstage for Fintech Engineering Growth - James Russo, Brex
As a high-growth fintech startup with multiple integrated partners, Brex was doubling its engineering headcount year over year for multiple years in a row. With this rapid growth came an ever-increasing number of software developers and tools to manage that software. In order to wrangle this rapid growth, we looked to build an internal developer platform which led us to Backstage. We quickly decided to move forward with Backstage because it had a cohesive ecosystem and was extensible. Over the past couple of years we have been adopting Backstage throughout our engineering organization and this presentation outlines our adoption journey and learnings.

Why Open Source Technology Is Critical to Widespread Adoption of CBDCs and Other Digital Currencies - Jennifer Peve, DTCC & Dominic Paolino, Accenture
The pace of experimentation and implementation of new, digital retail and wholesale payment systems around the world is accelerating. Much of the current focus is on upfront challenges of creating the frameworks for individual countries to introduce CBDCs and other digital currencies. But the complexity will only mount when there begins to be widespread adoption of new currencies and networks. In this session, Dominic Paolino of Accenture and Jennifer Peve of DTTC will detail why the level of interoperability, transparency and openness required to assure smooth, secure local, regional or even global transactions in a multi-digital currency world can only be delivered with open source distributed ledger technology.  

They will cover the criticality of pairing open source and open governance to create trusted technology backbones for these new currencies. And to deliver the interoperability and framework for alignment needed for the integration of payment networks that will meet diverse business, consumer and regulatory needs.
