Here are some questions for you to consider this week as you do your readings. Try to come up with some answers for yourself as you go:

  • If I find code on the internet, what am I allowed to do with it?
  • Is code subject to copyright?
  • As a student, if I create code at Seneca who owns the copyright, me or Seneca? What about if I'm working at a job?
  • How do I copyright my work?
  • How long does my copyright last in Canada?
  • What is open source?
  • What open source do I use?
  • How do I write a good blog post?
  • What is RSS? What is an RSS Feed?
  • What does it mean to "fork" a project?
  • What is Slack and How do I use it?
  • Who else is taking this course? How do I work with them?


  • Work on the Readings above and try answer the Questions I've posed for you.
  • Join the Seneca Open Source Slack using your @myseneca.ca email address and come introduce yourself to us
  • Create a blog for yourself and write your first post before Friday.
  • Begin work on Release 0.1 (due Fri Sept 25)
  • Start collaborating with your colleagues on Slack about open source, blogging, and Release 0.1. Make sure you don't try to tackle this alone. Leverage the community.
