FOSSLight won the ‘Achievement Award’ at the 3rd iNews24 Social D·N·A Innovation Awards. ‘Social D·N·A Innovation Award’ marks the 20th anniversary of iNews24 in 2020, leading public and private innovation and social value realization based on D (Data), N (Network), and A (AI). This award was newly established to discover and disseminate best practices. FOSSLight has been recognized and awarded as an open source software(SW) management tool that the software industry is paying attention to. Kyoungae Kim, leader of Open Source task at LG Electronics said, “FOSSLight is a tool that contains various difficulties and know-how experienced while working in open source compliance for over 10 years. I feel proud that the results of these efforts are very helpful for the open source compliance and management of many companies.”.
Following last year, the FOSSLight project participated in 2022 Open Source Contribution Academy this year. The Open Source Contribution Academy is a contribution mentoring program where you can break down entry barriers to open source and experience the open source culture of participating, open, sharing, and collaborating with senior developers by supporting each other’s ‘contributors’. This is a program that has been running steadily for many years. Especially this year, Dongmin Kang, who was a mentee for the FOSSLight project at the Contribution Academy last year, and Soim Kim, the maintainer of the FOSSLight project, served as project mentors this year. As a result of the two mentors and many mentees actively participating and contributing regardless of location, online and offline, we were awarded the President of National IT Industry Promotion Agency. Congratulations to all mentors and mentees!!
