ish and its founder have long been strong advocates for open source and contributed thousands of hours toward a range of open source projects.
We are exploring what parts of onCourse itself could become open source and are working to ensure all parts are unencumbered, ready for that move.
As part of this we are evaluating our pricing model to ensure we can continue to have a sustainable business model and give our customers more freedom and control.
