Accordingly, we require our hackers to open source the code they create in our Hackathons.  By participating in the Hackathon and signing HackFosterCareLA Waiver, you hereby agree to apply any one of the applicable Open Source Initiative licenses listed at http://opensource.org/licenses to any software you generate during the Hackathon. Distribution of software generated during the Hackathon to the public at no cost is most consistent with the not-for-profit principles underlying our mission.
