Hello,
 +
 +
OSGeo Code Sprint will come to Bonn (Germany) in March 2018 [1]. You are invited to join us. And we would like to ask you to sponsor the event.
 +
 +
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) has a long tradition of organizing code sprints for developers of Open Source GIS software [2]
 +
 +
Simultaneously with the FOSSGIS Conference 2018 in Bonn [3] an international code sprint of the OSGeo will take place from 19 to 25 March 2018.
 +
We expect about 80 developers from all over the world to come from various OSGeo projects [4]. Whether desktop application, geospatial library, metadata catalog or web mapping: be sure to find products in the list that you use. Thus, the Code Sprint is also an opportunity for your developers to meet with the core developers of the projects, get a deeper insight into the software and participate in the development.
 +
 +
The code sprint will take place at  BaseCamp [5] in Bonn. During the FOSS4G 2016 [6] in Bonn we organized already a code sprint at this location, in which about 100 developers worked on the open source projects every day [7].
 +
 +
In addition to the costs of providing the technical infrastructure, the cost of food and drinks for the developers is the main cost. A buffet at lunchtime and drinks during the whole day are intended.
 +
 +
So far, the code sprint is already sponsored by OSGeo, FOSSGIS e. V., WhereGroup, azavea & EOX.
 +
 +
In order to cover the costs, we would be very pleased about further sponsors!
 +
 +
What we offer:
 +
* Your logo on top of the websites of the Code Sprint [8] [1] as well as on all official documents around the Code Sprint
 +
* Mention in all code sprint related mails
 +
* Our undying gratitude, which comes in handy when you least expect it (Remember that feature you wanted...)
 +
 +
Our sponsorship levels:
 +
* Gold: >= 2500 USD
 +
* Silver: 1500 USD
 +
* Bronze: 750 USD
 +
 +
So...
 +
* get your company talking to the top developers of the scene!
 +
* enable your GIS developers to take advantage of this opportunity, there is no better opportunity to learn!
 +
* support the software you use - you benefit immediately.
 +
 +
Thank you very much!

Impressions from OSGeo Code Sprint 2018 in Bonn
  • went to Discuss list and Announce list

see OSGeo Foundation News: https://www.osgeo.org/foundation-news/impressions-from-osgeo-code-sprint-2018-in-bonn/

The annual OSGeo Code sprint was held in Bonn March 18 to 25, bringing together nearly hundred members of the OSGeo community together. A code sprint is a chance for the community to meet in person for direct collaboration, projects use this as an opportunity to work together or tackle larger issues as a team.

We made use of BaseCamp Bonn (http://www.basecamp-bonn.de/) to host the code sprint, providing a friendly indoor "campground' with picnic tables for working, surrounded by caravans of all shapes and sizes making up the accommodation. It can be quite a shock to roll out of bed, and find python developers in a cluster before your morning coffee.

Participation was open to all, not only OSGeo projects, and we were pleased to welcome over eighty developers from all over the world! This was a chance for developers to meet (often for the fist time) and collaborate with core developers, gaining a insight into the software, and participate in open source development,

An impressive list of projects was represented: uDig, GeoTools, LocationTech, JTS Topology Suite, JAI Replacement, TilelessMap, PostGIS, SHOGun, react-geo, Saga, OSGeoLive, owslib, debian/ubuntu, UbuntuGIS, OpenLayers, MapServer, QGIS, GeoExt 3, Nominatim, GDAL, t-rex, PyWPS, GRASS GIS, OWSLib, pygeometa, MapServer, geocatalogo, GeoNode, OTB, ZOO-Project, Proj.4, Point clouds, meshes, Potree, PDAL, GeoTrellis, snappy, OSM-Vector-Tiles, Geonetwork, Geoserver, OpenLayers Editor, Noise, CouchDB, MS4W, EOxServer, maposmatic, mapnik, Mapbender, gvSIG, gvSIG Mobile, Geopaparazzi, pyModis, GeoMajas, GeoHealthCheck, Stetl, Entwine, Greyhound, deegree, TEAM Engine, actinia, 3DCityDB and testing GMLAS tools!


Entwine


GeoHealthCheck (GHC)



Geopaparazzi


GRASS GIS



TEAM Engine



Mapbender


PyWPS



OSGeoLive


  • Tasks for incubation were done
    • Provenance review
    • Final touches of the new Documentation framework

OpenLayers


Mapbox styles generation library from OpenLayers (ol-mapbox-style) and upgrading the Boundless SDK (not an OSGeo project, but open source: https://github.com/boundlessgeo/sdk/) to OpenLayers 5.


OWSLib


  • Merged Pull-Requests
  • Fixed test-suite


PDAL



PgRouting



JTS Topology Suite



GeoTools


  • Following page https://github.com/geotools/geotools/pull/1834 migrated to the official Java "units" API used to used to convert between different distances, times and angles.
  • This work also migrated the GeoWebCache and GeoServer codebases to track the API change


Raster Processing Engine


  • Spent a lot of time reverse engineering the raster processing requireemnts of the Java community, starting with the GeoTools project and branching out to the JAI-Ext and JAI Tools code-base as required.
  • An initial architecture spike (https://github.com/locationtech/rasterprocessingengine) was created, providing an easy to use "builder" API, backed by the JAI-Ext implementation of affine transformation

The event also played host to some community building activities: FOSS4G 2019 organization, OSGeo board meeting, OSGeo marketing committee, MoU between TIB and OSGeo, OSGeo member meeting.


OSGeo Member meeting


The OSGeo Member Meeting took place in Bonn at BaseCamp at March 19th 2018 during the OSGeo Code Sprint. About 50 people came to the Member Meeting and from the board María Arias de Reyna, Jody Garnett, Vasile Craciunescu, Michael Smith, Angelos Tzotsos and Astrid Emde were present. María Arias de Reyna was moderating the meeting, a whiteboard (shown in the photo below) was used to collect topics and questions for the OSGeo board and members to discuss. (Read more https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Member_Meeting_Bonn_2018)


MoU TIB


During the Code Sprint the Mou between OSGeo and Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) – German National Library of Science and Technology was signed. Maria Arias de Reyna, President, Open Source Geospatial Foundation and Dr. Bastian Drees on behalf of Prof. Dr. Sören Auer, Director, Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) signed the MoU.

When not working, attendees did enjoy exploring the town, making for some great "geobeer" discussion. The sprint was held in conjunction with the FOSSGIS Conference (https://fossgis-konferenz.de/2018/), the regional "foss4g" event for Germany. The crew enjoyed a little bit of socializing, with code sprinters joining the "gala event" and contributing to the festive atmosphere and dancing. The city itself provided many distractions, with computational device museum being a highlight.

We would like to thank Bonn for showing everyone such hospitality, and looking forward to the next OSGeo Code Sprint!


After: OSGeo Code Sprint 2018 - thank you for joining. Press release and feedback needed

Title: OSGeo Code Sprint 2018 - thank you for joining. Press release and feedback needed
  • mail to ask for feedback and input for presse release

Hello all,

great that you joined OSGeo Code Sprint 2018 in Bonn two weeks ago. We hope you had a good and productive time in BaseCamp and hope you could build up many great contacts. And in the end had a save journey back home.

To some of you we could not say good-bye as we organized the FOSSGIS conference parallel to the code sprint and we underrated the work that had to be done for the events (so not such a good idea as we could not send enough time with you).

Photos Unfortunately we missed to make a group photo. We have to think about that next time. There are some photos from the event at flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/143943250@N05/albums/72157691529787542 If you have more photos please let us know.

Feedback & Press Release We would like to get your feedback and also would like to ask you for help with a press release about the Code Sprint.

Please add the information till 15. of April 2018. Then we will publish the press release a few days later.

Thanks for attending the OSGeo Code Sprint in Bonn. We were a great team and we enjoyed the sprint with you

- Accomodation Booking System: http://www.bonn-region.de/events/fossgis.html

Interested? So read more about why & where & when...

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) has a long tradition of organizing code sprints for developers of Open Source GIS software.

For several years the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) [1] has been organizing a yearly Code Sprint, a come-together of the "C Tribe" OSGeo projects - now we call it OSGeo Code Sprint. Leading developers of projects like GDAL, PostGIS, MapServer, QGIS, PDAL, and many more get together to discuss new ideas, hack, decide, tackle large geospatial problems & more & simply to have fun.

In 2018 the OSGeo Code Sprint will come again to Europe after Vienna (2014) [6] and Paris in (2016) [4]. This makes is possible to embed European developers and users. The tradition started in 2011 with Toronto [11], then New York [10], Montreal [9], Island Wood [8] and Boston [7]. And went to Philadelphia in 2015 [5] and last year to Daytona Beach (2017) [3]. Find a list of code sprints at [12].

OSGeo Code Sprint 2018 in Bonn


This year the international code sprint of the OSGeo will take place from 19 to 25 March 2018 simultaneously with the FOSSGIS Conference 2018 in Bonn. We offer a setting so that individual projects can meet for their code sprint.

The code sprint will take place at BaseCamp in Bonn. During the FOSS4G 2016 in Bonn we have already organized a code sprint at this location, in which about 100 developers worked on the open source projects every day. (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2016_Code_Sprint). It is a really awesome location. Codesprint and accommodations are combined in one hall and you will live in a caravan, bus or cabin.
