Project Resources

Source Code & Issue Tracking

Egeria is an open-source project available under the Apache-2.0 license. This is a permissive license that gives a lot of flexibility of what you can do with the software.

As with many open-source projects, Egeria is hosted on GitHub, and divided into a number of repositories.

Take a look at the main Egeria repo. This is where the core code is stored, and where we track any Issues in core Egeria.

As you work through this Dojo you may find problems with our documentation - perhaps something is wrong, or unclear. Our Documentation is managed in egeria-docs and you can raise Issues there.


We will revisit these other repositories & explain what they are used for in more detail another day.


Another useful resource to help you as you work through these Dojo sessions - whether it is problems, questions, or about topics unrelated to the Dojo, you can join our LF AI & Data Slack workspace. Once you've done so, look at the channels beginning 'egeria-'. '#egeria-dojo' has been set-up to support this learning activity.
