If you follow Open Mainframe Project, you know that we collaborate with several open source projects like ELISA, LF Edge, CD Foundation, and FINOS (Fintech Open Source Foundation). So please join me in congratulating our good friend Gabriele Columbro, Executive Director of FINOS and now General Manager of Linux Foundation Europe!

Announced at Open Source Summit Europe yesterday, Linux Foundation Europe will be headquartered in Brussels, Belgium. It launches with a dozen founding members that intend to collaborate to form a disruptive inaugural project, and original research offering new insights into the European dynamics of open source.

Linux Foundation Europe’s mission is to accelerate the growth of thriving open collaborative efforts focused on challenges and opportunities of all European constituencies, from individuals to public and private sectors, while providing an on-ramp for European projects and companies to succeed and collaborate on a global scale.
