Survey period: 8 May 2011 to 22 May 2011

Using others' work may require nothing more than agreeing to a license, or not removing copyright notices, or it could require something like an acknowledgement in your 'About' page. Do you abide by others' wishes? (This survey is anonymous)

* EDIT * I misread the question.. if there's a license that say we have to credit them, I don't know why you shouldn't. *EDIT*

It's kind of hard to give everyone credits.

- Thanks Dijkstra for the A* pattern I used.
- Thanks to Gang of Four for the Strategy Pattern that I've used 2 or 3 times.
- Thanks to Microsoft for C# boilerplate code
- Thanks to the jQuery dev team.. and the jQuery UI dev.
- Thanks to grid.css. It helped me a lot.

etc etc..

We write very little original code in our applications. Unless we do.

I personally, never published any real applications in the open.
GeneralI'm surprised... Pin
