Equity, Community & Resilience

Why does all software created at Open Hack and 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 a Free and Open Source, Creative Commons, Open Data Commons license. 

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