Open source is broadly used in almost all software development projects in the GÉANT project, and so a good working knowledge of how open-source licenses work as well as understanding compliance and risks are crucial to securing your code.
The objective of this of this course is to enable software developers to contribute effectively to projects by – depending on the nature of the project – choose the most suitable Open Source Software (OSS) license and verify if there are any license incompatibilities.
This course provides an introduction to open source licensing and compliance. The course is led by OSS experts: Andrew Katz and Alex Murphy from Orcro Limited.
This training is primarily open to GÉANT Project members.
