GitHub + F/OSS => 1 Million SPDX - Nuno Brito, TripleCheck

SPDX is an open format for describing software licenses, contents and ownership. It is a simple text document with great benefits for software governance. But have you ever seen one? Despite being an open standard, there aren't many available to public. Using only Linux, GitHub and F/OSS tools, Nuno and Ben were fuelled to prove that SPDX is also applicable to everyday projects. As result, the first large-scale SPDX Internet archive came to exist. Join this presentation to learn how over 1 million SPDX documents were created using open data in large-scale repositories and how easy it is to create one. From now forward you'll be able to express the licenses in your code automatically and create licensing transparency by yourself.
