Just a reminder that OSS Chicago is tonight and the topic is OSS Licensing.
Open Source Licensing
Presenter: Ira Kalina
This presentation will focus on the distinctions between licensing software under open
source licenses versus proprietary models. We will discuss the critical aspects of the
most common types of open source licenses and how these differences may impact your use,
and your audience?s use, of the software. We will also focus on why and how you should
consider auditing and managing your use of third party open source applications.
