Join us on Wednesday, March 20th at 7 pm in Intrepid Labs, in The American Twine Building (222 Third St. Cambridge, MA 02141 4th floor) for our next Boston Post Mortem meeting:

We will have a brief discussion of open source licenses, such as the BSD License, the GNU General Public License, the Beer-Ware License and the Chicken Dance License v0.2. We will also discuss the potential risks that open source software may present to your business and IP, and some best practices for game developers. There will be time for Q&A.
