A question about blogging considering freeCodeCamp

I am attempting to add freeCodeCamp to my blog to help point people in their direction and I am wondering if they would for some reason get upset at all if I used their logo on my website as the freeCodeCamp blog articles cover photo? I doubt they will mind and they may even appreciate it but I just want to be sure.

Welcome, @affiliateyourself.

I cannot answer this with a Yes or No, but here is some related information:

Can I create apps or tools based around the freeCodeCamp community and platform?

Yes. freeCodeCamp is open source (BSD-3 license), and most non-sensitive freeCodeCamp data is publicly available. But you must make it clear that you don’t represent freeCodeCamp itself, and that your project is not officially endorsed by freeCodeCamp.

Something else to think of it how you would use the freeCodeCamp logo. freeCodeCamp does have a solid brand-referencing guide somewhere, but I cannot find it. Specifically, it contains information on the size/shape of the logos - it should maintain a specific aspect ratio, not be rotated/stretched, remain the same colour, and not be mixed/matched.

So, at the end of the day:

  • The licensing agreement freeCodeCamp uses is relatively permissive, and majority of the platform content is distributable.
  • It depends on what exactly you do with the branding.

Final note (might not be relevant): If you are looking to co-brand in any way with freeCodeCamp, you are best sending Quincy an email at quincy@freecodecamp.org

Hope this helps some.
