Licenses page added to my site!

I’ve finally gotten around to creating a page that details licenses for source code posted on my site. Check the Licenses page for details!

This is something I really should have gotten around to earlier. If you run a site with code posted, it’s also something you should do. Unless you have a license available for your code somewhere, others cannot use it in their own projects. For example, even if you write a super-helpful blog post about how to solve a programming problem, or offer useful code snippets in your posts, others cannot legally use them.

I opted for the MIT License because it’s super open. I’m in the process of adding a text file with the license to applicable files on my site, but in the meantime, feel free to contact me if there is any confusion. If you’re not sure where to start on picking a license for your code, consider this list of Open Source Licenses.

Also, as a disclaimer: I am not a lawyer. If you need legal advice, you should consider consulting a lawyer or attorney.
