Uber Joins the Linux Foundation’s OpenChain Project as a Platinum Member


By Matt Kuipers

Uber is dedicated to fostering greater collaboration and community across our open source ecosystem. In this spirit, Uber today announced that we are joining the OpenChain Project as a Platinum member. This news follows our recent announcement during Uber Open Summit 2018 that Uber would be joining the Linux Foundation as a Gold member.

The OpenChain Project, hosted by The  Linux Foundation, builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent, providing companies with open source compliance specifications, processes, policies, and training to foster consistent and comprehensive open source supply chains.

As part of the OpenChain Project’s governing board, Uber will help create best practices and define standards for open source software compliance. Also announced today during the Open Compliance Summit in Yokohama, Japan, Google and Facebook join Uber as Platinum members of the project.

“We are very excited to see three innovative tech leaders join the project and welcome their experience to our Governing Board,” said Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “We believe that their support will be a vital component as we continue to build upon a successful, meaningful industry standard for open source compliance in the supply chain.”
