6:30 // Welcome from Colin Eberhardt, CTO of Scott Logic

6:35 // The benefits of the FINOS Open Developer Platform // James McLeod

The Open Developer Platform is an OSS delivery pipeline offered to all FINOS members and is composed of DevOps tools and mechanisms that keep engineers safe whilst contributing to Fintech Open Source. During his talk, James focuses on Docusaurus, a ReactJS platform used by FINOS and the ODP project for building collaborative wikis, and explains how contributing to documentation in repos helps grow healthy and safe open source communities.

6:50 // How to simplify and transform enterprise financial operations by combining open-source software and Open Banking APIs // Stephen Diehl

In this presentation, Stephen will introduce Adjoint's approach and motivations for open-sourcing. He will cover the technical, cultural and commercial benefits for the company, its staff, partners and clients. He will also talk about how to build commercial products using open-source technology components and Open Banking APIs; and how this brings digitisation, speed, efficiency and controls to financial operations in ways that were hitherto infeasible.

7:20 // Break

7:30 // Intelligence as a Service (AIops & DevOps) // Adam Mcmurchie

In this presentation, Adam will showcase a one-size-fits-all, five-year roadmap to guide businesses big and small into a successful DevOps-enabled AI transformation. He will also explore Dynamic Banking – the first major wave of AI finance-centric innovations from slim predictive fraud engines to frictionless banking IPB micro-apps. Finally, he will report on the progress being made across the globe towards the second major wave of AI, and what this means for finance as a whole.

8:00 // Delivering software as progressive web applications to the financial desktop // Petyo Ivanov

Google calls Progressive Web Apps "the future of software delivery". Petyo will talk about why PWAs matter to the financial desktop, and announce the company’s open source PWA integration platform.
