About this talk

Open source license scanning tools like FOSSA play an important role in software development for many organizations. That’s because these tools automate what would otherwise be the manual (and time-consuming) process of identifying and inventorying the licenses that govern use of open source code But how, exactly, does a license scanner work? And how can you be sure they produce accurate results? Join FOSSA software engineer Scott Patten on June 29 for answers to these questions and more. Scott will share a behind-the-scenes look at our new license scanning technology, including insight into topics like: -Design priorities for our new license scanner -Types of license matching -A deep dive into the license detection algorithms -Important lessons learned
