Open Source Guidelines

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 at Hack for Western Mass:

  • Are licensed under an 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”.
  • Have their code posted on a publicly available code repository.

We encourage you to publish your code at HackForWesternMass on GitHub. Having a single place for repositories will help develop the community of collaborators. If you don’t already have one, create a free account and then submit a ticket to be added to the our github organization.
