Don't Forget the License!28 Jun 2016
If you write some code and want to share it with the world, don’t forget to add a license! Posting code on a public repository on GitHub and allowing people to incorporate that code into their own products are not one and the same. So add a license please!
As will all things, there are tons of licenses for you to pick from. choosealicense.com has a nice guide on the most commonly used licenses. Basically, if you want to let people use your code without too many restrictions go with the MIT License.
So go forth! Code, slap a license on it, and share it!
