This blog aims to be a learning source for software development and IT professionals and as such encourages publicly and openly sharing the content from these pages. This page provides advice how to do that respectfully and responsibly. It also helps anyone who is interested in how we share information we use from other sources.
Copy up – what can you do with our posts
All of the content presented in this blog is free for copying and reusing in any imaginable form, as long as you don’t claim it to be your own! As a fair game, we ask you to link back or mention the blog as the source when copying content from this blog.
We are big fans of the Creative Commons licenses, but have no plans to officially register any of the content as such at the moment. Ideally, though, we would be grateful if you treat your own content where you may be referencing our content as following at least the less restrictive Creative Commons license (Attribution).
Copy down – how we treat our sources
All of the ideas and thoughts represented in this blog are solely those of the author of the respectful post — along with any mistakes they may have made when writing them! Any quotes from other sources, along with citations and references are generally accompanied by enough information or links to be traced back to the original — if you find any where this is not the case please let us know through the Contact form or in the comments of the particular post and we will correct this immediately!
While we may from time to time buy images or videos from services like iStock Photo (like the image in the header of our blog), most of the images and videos embedded in the posts are either produced by the authors themselves or they use non-copyrighted content freely available on the Internet.
The authors generally do not edit free images, so it is easy for people to find the original or other references when using tools like TinEye Reverse Image search. We also use a practice to link the image back to the site where it was obtained from, unless the site is utterly irrelevant to the topic of the post and we are fairly confident the image is free.
If you suspect any content is copyrighted and we may not freely use it, let us know and we will properly credit the source or try to find an alternative!
