Since 2011 I’ve accumulated many years worth of content and code samples on this site and I want to be clear about how I intend for that content/code be used. I encourage fair use of all content and code samples I publish. Feel free to create derivative works and use my code samples as starting points or solutions in your own code.
I’m specifically publishing licenses for my content and code here to avoid a situation I experienced recently where someone used my code as part of their own resume/portfolio in order to get a job. I’m also publishing this because some people are extra conscious of this legal stuff so rather than responding to each individual question about how one can use the content and code published here people can either find it themselves or I can just respond with a link to this page.

- Commercial use
- You may distribute the code you find here freely
- You may modify the code as you please
- If used privately you do not need to share your modifications
Conditions for using code samples:
- You must include a copy of this license and the copyright notice somewhere with the code. I don’t expect you to put the MIT license and copyright notice directly within code samples when used on your own blog. All I ask is that you add a link to a page that credits my code samples and includes a copyright notice even if its on a single page of the site like this one. If you provide code downloads then you should include a
Licensefile or put the license in a code comment.
- The only limitation is that you do not hold me (the original author) responsible for any damages resulting from the running, publishing, or hosting of the code.
