The Story of SOOS

Josh Jennings, SOOS Founder

SOOS began as a side project, born out of my own experience as a Software Architect helping out with an organizational compliance exercise.  There was a moment during the due diligence process where it became apparent that security and licensing in open source software were things we needed to worry about.  While attempting to manually identify all the licenses and potential compliance issues within the various branches of code, I felt there had to be an easier way.  So I did some research… 

What I found was frustration.  Of the available tools, there was a great deal of confusion around features, pricing, and user seats.  Nothing was straightforward, and after spending a ton of time reading through websites, and talking to sales representatives, I still didn’t feel any closer to the solution I was looking for.  This motivated me to begin building one myself.

It was always important to me that SOOS be accessible to everyone – that’s why we don’t have limits on pricing, or users, or number of scans.  As an architect, I also wanted SOOS to be something I would want to use, and something developers everywhere would be excited about. As security breaches become more commonplace, it is critical that companies are aware of each and every dependency within their code. I’m proud to say SOOS is available to help the development community stay secure.

The Champlain Mill

Built in 1910 and powered by the Winooski River, the Champlain Mill has been the center of life in Winooski for over a century.

Mill workers came from all over the world and produced fine worsted wool used in coats and suits sold by the American Woolen Company until the Mill closed in 1954. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Champlain Mill offers the Burlington area a unique office, retail, and restaurant space.

The Champlain Mill is a proud member of the Winooski Falls neighborhood—an award winning, smart growth, new urbanist redevelopment recognized nationally for its innovative approach to community development. Awarded the national Livable Communities Award, this walkable neighborhood on the banks of the beautiful Winooski River includes over 100 acres of preserved open space, a riverwalk, and shops, eateries, and services for the young and the young at heart.
