Chaitin School

On Licensing of Open Source Software

Mon, 20 May 2024 18:30

Interested in understanding the differences between the various ways open source (and non-open-source) software is licensed? Great! Come to this event!

There has recently (eg. Elasticsearch and Redis cases) been a resurgence of discussion on how we license and how we can license software we create (which is people's work) fairly.

We'll talk about the cases of Elasticsearch and Redis but also we'll explore the history of licenses and compare the most popular licenses, eg. MIT, Apache, GPL family, et al.

Come to learn and reflect, think and discuss!


6:30 Hellos
7:00 Presentation
