Purpose

Get together project members to make decisions and tackle larger problems (as done last year at the Toronto Code Sprint 2009). This code sprint is targeting members of the "C Tribe" (eg, Mapserver, GRASS, GDAL, Proj, PostGIS, MapGuide). Other tribes are welcome to join the sprint, of course, but we hope that "C Tribe" members will give this event special consideration.

We have started a New York Code Sprint 2010 Agenda page for preliminary planning of tasks.

Sponsors

We will again be looking for sponsors ($750) to support food and fun for the sprinters as they work hard and play hard for four productive days.
