Social ideas

If you need to take a break, some ideas close to the sprint place:


We are planning for attendance of ~50. Please add your name and the projects you are planning to sprint and note the likeliness of your attendance.

1 name country code org date date project name Confirmed, tentative, etc




Participants should plan for the following costs:

  • Travel to Daytona Beach
  • Accommodation for four nights (including breakfast)

All other costs - food, outings and entertainment - should/will be covered by the sponsors


Detailled budget

Individual preparation

  • Bring your own laptop
  • Install GIT and compiler tools, and come with a working development environment
  • If your laptop need it, video export adapter to DVI and/or VGA
  • Optional: something to take pictures (camera, smartphone, small tablet...)


We have three sponsorship levels:

  • Gold: >= 2500 USD
  • Silver: 1500 USD
  • Bronze: 750 USD

We encourage sponsors to support nutriment and entertainment for the sprinters as they work hard and play hard for four or five productive days. Contributions will be put towards lunch, snacks, and dinner costs for the sprinters, and potentially bringing in sprinters who might otherwise be unable to attend. Any surplus at the end of the event will be turned over to OSGeo or used for a future code sprint.

Sponsors will receive the following:

  • Your logo at the top of this page
  • Mention in all of our public communication
  • Our undying gratitude, which comes in handy when you least expect it (Remember that feature you wanted...)
  • And as extra, for Silver and Gold: Kakemono in the event room (if you provide it)

To sponsor, please contact xxx directly.
