Re: New participants: Steve from Analog Devices

Steve Kilbane

HI all,

Following on rather late from Shane's welcome, here's a bit more about myself.

I'm officially leading one of our software development teams, with responsibility for some of Analog Devices' code generation tools. I've been working on software licensing compliance with our dedicated Licensing Team for a number of years now, and am leading the drive towards automation, standardisation, internal education, and so on. I've been following SPDX for a while, but am less familiar with the other parts of the OSS tooling landscape (we have Protecode deployed, internally, within a largely manual system).

With that in mind, and my apologies if this is an inappropriate post for this group...

With respect to the Automotive market, my company is primarily a supplier, in that we're creating Automotive-specific products while often using non-Automotive-specific third-party content.

I'd like to connect with compliance folks in this workgroup to understand your current and future expectations of your suppliers with respect to compliance, so that I can transmit those expectations internally and (I hope) provide appropriate incentives to be able to meet those expectations when needed.

I'm happy to talk in generic terms here, or in more specific detail on a one-to-one basis off-list.

Looking forward to learning a lot more and, again, my apologies if this is a faux pas.
