996. ICU project LOGO:
Why did the project become so popular overnight?
996. There are many reasons why ICU can quickly become popular, so it is absolutely no coincidence. At present, domestic programmers generally have high-intensity overtime and staying up late. In the past few years, there have been frequent reports of sudden death of programmers due to overwork. At the same time, many companies have not paid overtime even though they often work overtime. After intensive work, physical health is declining day by day, which is also the reason for the project name with ICU, the majority of programmers are naturally very concerned about this issue.
At the same time, according to China's Labor Law, overtime work is more than 36 hours a month and corresponding wages are required, and 996 companies are estimated to have violated the Labor Law. It is also true that the 996. ICU project quickly attracted great attention after it was launched, and the project itself is also brewing more practical content.
List 996 company's initial objectives:
At present, the project has begun to list companies that implement the 996 work system, listing these companies hoping to give programmers a reference when they find jobs or change jobs.

More lethal 996.ICU Open Source License in the pipeline:
The project team is currently working on a 996. ICU Open Source License (tentative name), which will prohibit 996 companies from using open source software. There are many high quality and popular open source projects in China. If these projects use 996. ICU open source license, it will be more effective to 996 companies.
According to the conceived 996. ICU Open Source Agreement, it still provides commercial use for all companies or individuals, but the use of 996 working system by companies violates the agreement. At present, there are programmers in the discussion Posts who want to contact Google and Apache Foundation and so on, hoping that these large companies or open source projects can join the agreement.
Only programmers themselves protested against high-intensity overtime:
Programmers are not the only ones who work hard overtime at home, so the project is now translated into a multilingual appeal to programs around the world to join in the struggle. Discussions about licenses are also the hottest issues at present. If you are a programmer, it is recommended that you also participate in the discussion of the project and advise on licenses.
