If your organization uses open source components in developing software for distribution or even if you are just a consumer of software that contains open source, you really should know about SPDX(R). SPDX is an industry standard format for communicating software content, licensing and copyright information between partners in software supply chains. It can help your organization play by the open source rules in software distribution and work more smoothly with your partners. 

This session, targeted at the beginner, will cover the problem SPDX is designed to tackle, how the standard helps, the benefits for all involved, and some examples of companies using it today. It will also give you a tangible sense for SPDXwith a high-level look at what's inside an SPDX file. Finally, it will talk about the operation of the Linux Foundation's SPDX work group and give you an understanding of how to participate whether your interest is casual or you would like to get deeply involved.
