The Openness of Closed Systems
Monday 2:10 p.m.–2:35 p.m.
Target audience: Developer
Minecraft is popular. It's also a closed-source game. That hasn't stopped a very healthy and enthusiastic community of game modification creators (modders) from building around it.
In this talk I will discuss some of the issues that modding Minecraft raises; this will include a basic discussion of how it's done, how information is disseminated and lead into questions of how FOSS comes into the picture.
Richard likes games and Python and Open Source and likes when they all come together too.
