Talking with all the aspiring engineers at BlueStamp Engineering last week went over so well that Dave and Robin (the co-founders) asked me to come back and speak again this week. This time, we actually remembered to film my talk, so you can check it out below. Dave asked me to speak about Open Source Hardware and Software and the available licenses. So, I gave a quick 15 minute crash course on open-sourcing a project. While it was aimed at the projects being developed by the students in the class, the information I cover is applicable to just about anybody trying to choose an open source licensing scheme for their next project.
After my talk was over, I spent an hour helping various students with their projects. I continue to be impressed by the excitement for engineering that many of these students possess. Long live the makers!
And since this is an open source talk, I better release my powerpoint! These files are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
