Workshop Summary

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 training workshop is to enable software developers to contribute effectively to projects by – depending on the nature of the project – choose the most suitableOpen Source Software (OSS) license and verify if there are any license incompatibilities.

You will learn why Open Source Software License is important, which license to choose, and how to properly add copyrights and licenses to your code. After the introduction on compliance management, the trainer will be looking and reviewing with you real OSS licenses in a GÉANT setting and you will learn some best practice manual and automated methods for verifying licenses.
