WP Top Hat will be attending WordCamp St Louis 2018 I will be speaking as well. My talk will be on “WordPress, The GPL, and Ethics”
In this talk, we will take an in-depth look at the practices of forking or redistributing, GPL works, and the differences between these two things. We will reveal what some popular and well-known WordPress developers say about these practices.
This talk will include a deeper look at the GPL and the legal and ethical implications it provides in regards to GPL clubs and forking of themes and plugins.
The decision to release a product under the GPL is one that should not be made without a deep and full understanding of it’s implications. When you leave this talk, you will have a better understanding of what the GPL is and how you can use it an ethical and legal way. You will better understand the heated debate in the WordPress community surrounding this topic and be better prepared to defend your own position.
As a developer, you will better understand the full impact of your decision to release your work under the GPL.
So join me at WordCamp St Louis in May. For more information, visit their site HERE.
We hope to see you there!
