The Openness of Closed Systems

Presented by Richard Jones
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.
