Why does all software created at National Day of Civic Hacking have to be open source?

We believe in giving participants the most freedom possible in licensing their work, balanced with the freedom of others to use and adapt technologies to their needs. We require that all projects worked on through the initiative:

1. Are licensed under an Open Source Initiative (OSI) approved license. While you are free to choose any license, we recommend using one listed as “Licenses that are popular and widely used or with strong communities”.

2. Have their code posted on a publicly available code repository. GitHub and Google Code are popular choices.

Submission Guidelines:

Sunday, 12 Noon deadline

Create a basic presentation for the judging with the following elements:

 

  • Slide 1 Team Member BIOs and role on team
