Get together project members to make decisions and tackle larger problems (as done last year at the [[IslandWood Code Sprint 2012]]). This code sprint is targeting members of the "C Tribe" (eg,  Mapserver, GRASS, GDAL, Proj, PostGIS, MapGuide, OpenLayers). Other tribes are welcome to join the sprint, of course, but we hope that "C Tribe" members will give this event special consideration.

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. Each $750 sponsorship will be put towards lunch and dinner costs for the sprinters, and potentially bringing in sprinters who might otherwise be unable to attend.

SPECIAL BULLETIN

If you have not found accommodation under $200 or would like to have a roomie, please contact Leo at lr at pcorp.us now. You will still find great values on Hotwire or Price Line. Deluxe accommodation starts around $120. Luxury starts around $170. Act fast!

If you have special dietary requirements, please contact Leo at lr at pcorp.us. Otherwise be expected to consume land animals, sea creatures, and vegetation.

Purpose

Get together project members to make decisions and tackle larger geospatial problems (as done last year at the IslandWood Code Sprint 2012 and previous years: Montreal (2011), New York City (2010), and Toronto (2009)). This code sprint is targeting members of the "C Tribe" (eg, MapServer, GRASS, GDAL, Proj, PostGIS, MapGuide, OpenLayers). 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 Boston Sprint 2013 Agenda page for preliminary planning of tasks.
