We are in the progress of organizing the Meetup, so expect changes in the schedule. I will keep this description up to date.

Let's have our first Meetup and figure out what an OSPO is and how to organize one. All presentations will have a Q&A section at the end.

Our topics to discuss:

17:00 - 17:10: Gathering

17:10 - 17:30: What is TODO and what it does - Gergely Csatari (Senior Open Source Specialist at Nokia): In this welcome note Gergely will introduce the TODO Group, the supporting organisation of our Meetup Group. This will include the explanation of what an OSPO is, what Linux Foundation is and what TODO is. At least what Gergely thinks about these.

17:30 - 18:00: How OSPO is organized in Ericsson - Jimmy Ahlberg (Director Open Source Policy): TBD

18:00 - 18:20: Beer, Pizza and socializing part 1.

18:20 - 18:45: Finnish open source organisations landscape - Martin von Willebrand (Partner at HH Partners, Attorneys-at-law): Martin will cover the different open source related organizations active in Finland, as well as the most important international ones, taking into account the OSPO perspective. The audience will learn about COSS, Validos, Double Open, FSFE, Openchain and other initiatives.

18:45 - 19:15: How OSPO is organized in Veikkaus - TBD (): Veikkaus Open Source compliance journey. A quick look at our policies, processes and ways of working in OSS space.

19:15 - 19:25: Interactive discussion about future topics we would like to discuss (Gergely): In this session Gergely will ask the audience about their OSPO related problems and we will identify potential future discussion topics.

19:25 - ~20:00: Beer and pizza continues.

Our Meetup is ran by the Helsinki Chapter of the TODO Group (https://community.linuxfoundation.org/ospo-local-meetup-helsinki/).

Pizza, beer and venue is provided by our event sponsor, Double Open.

Please provide precise RSVP, so we can calculate the amount of pizza and beer what we will consume without waste.
